This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Kurt Anderson's "techniques represent the collective wisdom of generations of artists who have spent their lives learning to see, to understand what they saw, and then inventing ways to describe it in two dimensions. . . . It's a nice gem to find in the middle of a sometimes confusing art world in which the skillful draftsman takes a back seat to the newest fad."
Editor Michael Ward in the Artist Magazine

Kurt Anderson is a painter of portraits, still lifes, and landscape, and his commissions have ranged from painting book covers to portraits to corporate presidents. He has also exhibited in numerous museum shows including the national touring exhibition "Classical Realism: The Other Twentieth Century."

His most recent museum exhibitions include "The Academic Dialogue" at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts and "The American Still Life" at the Minnesota Museum of Art.  He has also received numerous awards including the Stacey Foundation Scholarship for artist and the New York Salmagundi Club Award for Artistic Excellence.

Anderson is author of Realistic Oil Painting Techniques published by North Light Books, 1995.

He was born in 1958 in Cedar Falls, Iowa, received his art education at Atelier Lack Studio School of Art in Minneapolis, and until 2002, when he moved to Tucson, Arizona, maintained a studio in St. Paul, Minnesota.
