All You Need is Love, and Csaba Markus


"When I began painting, I was thinking about music.
I asked myself, what was the most influential and important music
of the century? Of course, there can always be arguments about this,
but my choice was the Beatles. They were always authoritative,
exciting, and innovative and every song was a love song."
—CSABA MARKUS (January 26, 1953 – )

Csaba Markus, Park West Gallery Fine Art Collection
“Europea” by Csaba Markus | Park West Gallery Fine Art Collection
There are many other painters in the world, but many Park West Gallery collectors will tell you that there is only one whose paintings can create such contrasts within such harmony, one who can express the Eternal Feminine in her many guises, both as mortal woman and as mythological goddess. There is one who does not paint merely to please the eye, but to shake the soul of the viewer.

There is only one, and his name is Csaba Markus.

A Park West Gallery exclusive • By Mitsie Scaglione

Through the door of our Hotel in Paris came an energy force that was the artist Victor Spahn. He is a whirlwind of motion, much like his art of sailboats, horses and sports figures.

Victor had come to take Albert and I to his home outside of Paris, where he has a studio. The artist Linda Le Kinff and her husband, Jacques, joined us. Many of our artists have forged friendships beyond their respective art world...

The Mysterious Allegories of Roy Fairchild


Park West Gallery proudly presents the extraordinary works of British artist Roy Fairchild. Often referred to as “neo-romantic,” Fairchild’s art is at once mysterious and yet accessible. It is wholly unique and yet grounded in many artistic styles…

“A Gift From Far Away” by Roy Fairchild | Park West Gallery
A Park West Gallery exclusive • By Roy Fairchild
My early career was spent as an illustrator. At first, I enjoyed the challenge of tight deadlines, and the changes in style to suit the needs of the client—anything from cartoons to technical illustration. As I grew older, however, I became increasingly frustrated by the skipping from one style to another. I found that I needed to find a style that I could spend time on, to develop and grow. In short, like most artists, I needed to find my own voice...

A Park West Gallery exclusive • By Mitsie Scaglione
For these many years when traveling to Paris, we have always stayed at the Hotel Montreal by the Paris Opera, a small hotel with 23 rooms where “everybody knows your name.” The proprietor Madame Jacqueline and her assistant, Monsieur Jacques, become our Paris family. We could always depend on them to assist us with our artist appointments, many of which took place in the lovely sitting room of the hotel. It was there that we first met Linda Le Kinff and her husband, Jacques...
