The first major retrospective for 84-year-old representational painter David Leffel opened at Pepperdine University’s Frederick R. Weissman Museum on May 14. The artist, often described as a modern student of Rembrandt, was on hand to greet an enthusiastic crowd at the opening reception.  

“It’s not a coincidence that David’s show follows the Andy Warhol exhibition,” Michael Zakian, director of the Weisman Museum, told the Malibu Surfside News.
