John J. Stancin is a neo-romantic painter with a highly individualized style. His clear, cool color values, used in a distinctive way with linear perspective, seem to create a moody poetic image.
John J. Stancin studied at the Chicago Art Institute, with Al Landers in New York, and with Al Lecoque, pupil of August Renoir. On the West Coast, Stancin became the director of the American Academy of Fine Arts, and also produced a television series called Art for the Fun of It. Hollywood's movie colony has taken particular interest in Stancin's works, and during the Johnson Administration, his paintings could be found in both Lyndon Johnson's and Hubert Humphrey's private offices.
