Lawrence Vincent Garrison (1923 - 2007)
Lawrence Vincent Garrison followed his muse and became a portrait artist, painting couples, families and children. He made his living as an artist, but after several years he felt restricted by the structured nature of portrait work. Encouraged by fellow artist Julian Ritter, Mr. Garrison switched to painting nudes in 1963. He took to the form immediately and spent the next four decades trying to capture the graceful line and subtle tones of the human body. Garrison often said that he was captivated by the elegance of women and wanted "to put women on a pedestal." The challenge of capturing the human form was Mr. Garrison's passion.
