George Brainerd Burr

Burr was a colorist who believed in the precepts of a daring American Impressionism. Many of his watercolors and oil paintings are brilliantly polychromed with faceted areas of pure color over a bare surface creating a highly saturated and avant-garde example of this variation on the aesthetic of American Impressionism.

Jennie Brownscombe

Jennie Augusta Brownscombe (December 10, 1850 – August 5, 1936) was an American painter, designer, etcher, commercial artist and illustrator. Brownscombe studied art for years in the United States and in Paris. She was a founding member, student and teacher at the Art Students League of New York. She made genre paintings, including revolutionary and colonial American history, most notably The Peace Ball held at Pilgrim Hall in Plymouth, Massachusetts. Her works are in many public collections and museums. In 1899 she was described by New York World as "one of America's best artists."

Charles Alfred Meurer

Born in Germany of American parents, Charles Meurer became the last living link to the heyday of the trompe l'oeil painting style. He settled in Terrace Park, Ohio, a suburb of Cincinnati, and maintained a studio there for many years. He continued to paint after both of his legs were amputated, asserting that he still had his brushes and his spirit. Many of his trompe l'oeil works have reproductions of money, and he has also done painting with hunting motifs that are similar to work by Michael Harnett, the man credited with founding the trompe l'oeil style in America.

Leroy Neiman

Best known for his brilliantly colored, stunningly energetic images of sporting events and leisure activities, LeRoy Neiman is probably the most popular artist in the United States. The artistic style of the fabulously successful Neiman is familiar to a remarkably broad spectrum of Americans –“rich and poor, black and white, urban and rural, educated and illiterate,” and young and old alike. He was the official artist at five Olympiads. Millions of people have watched him at work: on ABC TV coverage of the Olympics,as CBS Superbowl computer artist, and at other major competitions, televised on location with his sketchbook and drawing materials, producing split-second records and highly developed images of what he is witnessing. “Before the camera, such reportage of history and the passing scene was one of the most important functions of painters and draftsmen of all sorts. Mr. Neiman has revived an almost lost and time-honored art form,” Carl J. Weinhardt observed in the catalog for the exhibition of Neiman’s 1972 Olympics sketches, which was mounted that year by the Indianapolis Museum of Art. In the Christian Science Monitor (May 2, 1972), Nick Seitz wrote that Neiman, who has been labeled an American Impressionist, “has the journalistic talent, as well as the artistic ability, to convey the essence of a game or contestant with great impact, from the Kentucky Derby to Wilt Chamberlain, from the America’s Cup to Muhammad Ali, from the Super Bowl to Bobby Hull.”

Gilbert Stuart

Gilbert Stuart is an acclaimed 18th Century American Portrait Painter. Stuart left a legacy of memorable portraits, over one thousand done in his lifetime. He immortalized Presidents Washington, Jefferson, Madison, Monroe, John Adams, and John Quincy Adams, heroes of the Revolution and War of 1812, prominent statesmen, and society men and women of the day. He was an artistic genius known for capturing a sitter’s essence. Just look into the eyes of his portraits and one will see and appreciate his extraordinary aptitude.

Leo J. Milhoan (American, 1894 – 1981) was an active painter for over 50 years.  A large portion of his life was spent in the West, and Southwest. He was especially

Robert L. Mulder

In 1972, Robert Mulder turned to being a professional artist with the encouragement of his wife, Helen. He was a part of the Portland Saturday Market from 1972 to 1997 with his paintings, silk screenings, watercolors, oils, acrylics, and ink and pencil drawings. He was selected to travel to China and Hong Kong as one of 50 American artists and art educators in a dialogue sponsored by the Kennedy Center and Ministry of Culture and by the Government Secretariat of Hong Kong in 1988. Bob has compiled many books of his art including a few of the titles as: “Noble Creatures O The Large Dark Forest”, “Jocularity”’ “The Listener” and “Mulder”.

Bohdan Borzemsky

Bohdan Borzemsky, born in Kolomyia, Ukraine has been recognized for his artistic talent and achievements for over five decades. He studied art at one of the best known European art schools, The Lviv National Institute of Art in Ukraine, and later studied oil painting, drawing and graphic design at The Cooper Union Art School in New York, where he studied under Edwin Dickinson and Robert Gwathmey, receiving the prestigious Graduation Prize in 1951. Mr. Borzemsky has since won two Cooper Union Alumni Association Awards for the highest achievement in graphic art. He has also been recognized by the Library of Congress. Mr. Borzemsky is a master in the technique of woodcuts. Recently, through experimentation, he invented his own individual technique that he calls papercuts, substituting heavy paper for wood.

Paul Maxwell

Paul E. Maxwell was a modern artist and sculptor who developed a technique for using stencils to create thickly textured and layered surfaces, as well as objects he patented as “stencil casting” but that later became known as “Maxwell Pochoir.” His work is highly abstract and often consists of some kind of grid—a form that is non-hierarchical and illustrates a major theme of his work.

Roy Lichtenstein

Roy Lichtenstein was one of the most influential and innovative artists of the second half of the twentieth century. He is preeminently identified with Pop Art, a movement he helped
