Albert Dreher 
Master of the Oil Wash


After 15 years of suffering with a damaged heart, Albert spent the last 9 months of 2014 testing and waiting at the Veterans Administration
Hospital /University of Utah Medical Center in Salt Lake City for a heart transplant. September 21, 2014 he received his transplant.
He convalesced for 5 months and was recently discharged to return to his home a normal life and his paintings. 

In all of his future paintings, Albert's traditional trademark moon will display a  
 "nimbus moon" to honor and respect his donor.

"Echo's of a Dynasty"

A Fine Artist for over 30 years and recognized as creator of the "Oil Wash" technique, 
Albert enjoys recognition nationally and internationally and is represented by galleries and 
art dealers in both the United States and Europe. Dreher invented and owns all the paper he creates his works upon. 
The paper is comprised of 50% cotton and 50% plastic fibers. With a Windsor Newton approved oil solvent the finished painting
gives the impression of a watercolor but the stability and longevity of a traditional oil painting on canvas.
