Dear Reader,

Welcome to a celebration of the life and work of Hugh Kappel, a fine artist...

     I knew him as my grandfather, an affable and kind man, though he died in the mid-eighties when I was a child, too young to appreciate his unique contribution to the art world.  In fact, I knew little of his work until quite recently.  Upon his death, his art studio treasures were stored for posterity's sake in the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, thanks to the foresight and concern of its curator, Stewart Turnquist.

      Having recently visited the Institute for the first time, I photographed the artwork contained in the collection for the world to see.  Though not all the work is represented online, the slideshow on this website aims to display the vast bulk of his casual sketches, works in progress, and finished pieces.  Even so, this collection in itself is but a small sampling of the known work he produced during his lifetime.  If you have knowledge of additional paintings, sculptures, or artwork, please contact me.

     For a richer understanding of his work, please visit this brief yet important biography.
