Non-objective & Romantic Paintings

Some of Jess’s early works show the influence of his teachers, including Elmer Bischoff, Edward Corbett, David Park, Hassel Smith, and Clyfford Still. Later, throughout the 1950s and 60s, he produced over a hundred canvases evoking mythic, enchanted landscapes, many including figures. These often visionary paintings have been increasingly appreciated in recent years.
