This biography from the Archives of AskART:

The following information was submitted in July of 2006 by the artist:

Donald S. Lewis, Jr., best known for his oil paintings of the rivers of Bath County, Virginia and the North Carolina and the Virginia coastline, was born the son of a prominate art dealer and collector in Norfolk, Virginia.  Working summers at his father's gallery he learned to restore paintings, framing, art history and the business of art. 

While attending Randolph-Macon College he majored in Fine Arts with the intent of joining his father at the gallery.  He obtained his Masters of Fine Art from The University of Virginia and spent twenty years working at Auslew Gallery eventually becoming president.  During this time, Lewis found time to paint and work outside with Charles Sibley a well known Virginia artist.  After closing the business in 1998, he began painting professionally. 

Lewis utilizes the American tradition of topographical art blending elements of luminism, realism and impressionism.  His sense of place and atmosphere transcends the everyday.  It is art that seeks to expose the nonverbal realities of existence.  Lewis shuns theatrics and seeks the truth and beauty that surrounds us all.
