Kurt Anderson

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."
