Biography from a third party submitted on 06/26/2008:
William Ward Beecher, a leading exponent in the school of "Trompe l'oeil," combines his skill in achieving an uncanny sense of dimension with a meticulous technique and an earthy sensitivity that results in works that do more than "deceive the eye".

He disclaims the mere tour de force of slick style and surface trickery that result in an irresistible desire to "touch," (although he admits to being secretly pleased when viewers do touch the surface to test".)

His paintings are simple and yet profound statements. Carefully chosen symbols and a superb design sense lead the eye and provoke an emotional response that grows and subtly changes with further observation.

Beecher's career effectively began with an exhibition in the 8th Air Force (in which he served in World War II). Since then, the New York born artist has shown from the Metropolitan Museum in New York - to the San Francisco Palace Of  The Legion Of Honor.

William Ward Beecher was born in Cornwall, Connecticut in 1921 and passed on in Cornwall in 2006.
