To view all work available by Hollis Dunlap visit artsy. Hollis Dunlap is part of the emerging group of artists who painstakingly study the old masters such as Caravaggio and Vermeer while being fully informed by modernists such as Diebenkorn. The mixture of precise draftsmanship with spontaneous brushwork and contrasting areas of thick and thin pigments echo Dunlap’s immersion of the classic and contemporary. Dunlap lives, paints and teaches in Connecticut and numbers among his collectors the director of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
What I admire about realism is the time and devotion that it takes to reproduce a single object beautifully — that commitment.
