A modernist landscape painter and lithographer who became prominent in California, Charles Reiffel was born in Indianapolis, Indiana. Primarily self taught, he studied briefly with Carl Marr in Munich and traveled for six years throughout Europe, sketching and studying in museums. He worked as a commercial artist in England and upon his return to the United States, he worked as a lithographer in Buffalo, New York. By 1912 he purchased a home in Silvermine, Connecticut and made sketching trips throughout New England. In 1925 he moved near San Diego, and his landscapes of California, the Southwest and the Grand Canyon brought him much acclaim. His artwork is housed in important museums, including the Irvine Museum, San Diego Museum of Art, and the Smithsonian American Art Museum.
