This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in New York City, Peter Holbrook earned a BA Degree from Dartmouth College and studied at the Brooklyn Museum with Reuben Tam. He taught at the University of Chicago and from 1970 to 1971 at the University of California at Hayward.  Working from his northern California studio in Redway, he paints from photographs he takes on location.  He has painted throughout California and the Southwest including Canyon de Chelly in Arizona.

Biography from Leslie Levy Fine Art, Inc.:

Known as one of the foremost painters of the canyons of the Southwest, Peter Holbrook has a unique and unusual method of painting. He portrays light and form with subtle and intricate patterns of color, combining the quality of abstraction with the image of reality. Photography is the source, which Holbrook uses, and he insists that it is just as important that he be an accomplished photographer as well as a painter. Combining the elements of a series of photographs, and using his own keen sense of natural light and space, Peter creates his own painterly reality to represent the beauty and true vision of the natural environment.Although his paintings appear to be photo-realistic from a distance, at close range the viewer can see that the canvas is filled with loose impressionistic strokes of color.
