Joseph Kleitsch | A Plein Air painter

Joseph Kleitsch (1882-1931) was a Hungarian-American portrait and Plein Air painter who holds a high place in the early California School of Impressionism.

Born in Banad, Hungary on June 6, 1882, Kleitsch began painting at the age of seven. He later pursued art training in Budapest, Munich and Paris. He immigrated to the United States in 1912 and two years later, on July 22, 1914, he married Edna Gregatis of Chicago, Illinois with whom he would have his only child, Eugene. Influenced by his visits to the famous museums of Europe, Kleitsch continued with his love of portrait and figurative painting after relocating to California.
