Literature:

Stavitsky, Gail, Emotion Expressed Through Precision: The Art of Charles Goeller, Franklin Riehlman Fine Art and Megan Moynihan Fine Art, New York, 2003, unpaginated (illustrated) (“Goeller’s paintings Checked Tablecloth, Figure and Blue Box all were signed in distinctive large block letters, insuring visibility when the works were exhibited, most likely high on the walls at the Salon of the Societe des Artistes Francais and the Salon d’Automne in Paris. The hallmarks of Goeller’s aesthetic are already fully developed in these works, which possess an almost hallucinatory precision of form, and were characterized by one reviewer as ‘clean cut some delicate to a degree, others powerful and forceful.’”)
