######################################################

Lennon Bandel paintings show the assurance of an experienced artist, understandably since he has made art his vocation and profession for many years. Schooled in Kansas City and the Kansas City Art institute as well as the Dayton Art Institute and the Cleveland Institute of Art.

Career: For several years was designer and artist in Kansas City, Dayton, Cleveland Ohio. Was Art Director in Cleveland. Has been painting professionally for many years in his studio in Mission Kansas specializing in portraits and landscapes.

Was instructor in Portrait classes at the Kansas City Art Institute and taught classes at the Jewish
Community Center for several years. Bandel’s paintings are included in the comprehensive collections of many prominent families in the Mid-West and the East. Has received recognition and many awards in the Kansas City Area, also first at the Cleveland Museum of Art for portrait.

Has shown at the Plaza Art Fairs and at the Ward Parkway Art Show for many years. Has also show at Crown Center in Kansas City.

His studio in Mission, Kansas

 - From a typed paper also attached to the back of one
of Lennon Bandel’s paintings c.1980.

#######################################################

Bandel often framed his own oil paintings and included a small plaque with the title of the painting.  In addition, the back of the painting often has hand written notations with dates on the progress he was making with the various steps necessary to completely finish the painting. He would note when the primary paints were started and completed, when varnish was applied, etc.

His style was extremely realistic and the characters represented in his painting seem to take on a life of their own. The influence of his teachers, especially Thomas Hart Benton are very evident. Lennon Bandel passed away on March 10th 2004 at the Blue Hills Rest Home in Independence Missouri at the age of 97.
