Original works of art

Joseph H. Sulkowski
(American, Contemporary )

Born in Pittsburgh, Joseph Sulkowski became a painter in realist style especially noted for dog portraits and sporting scenes with horses and foxhounds.

As a teenager, he began to get recognition for his art talent, and he won acceptance to the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. After completing his studies there, he went to New York City and studied at the Art Students League where his teacher was Frank Mason.

Sulkowski is a believer in the classical traditions of creating art, which involves skillful draftsmanship, knowledge of anatomy, careful preparation of canvases and paint. As an artist steeped in tradition, Sulkowski passionately involved in the medium of his craft. He regards the meticulous preparation of his paints, oils and varnishes as a major asset which allows him to more fully express his creative intentions in paint on canvas. Sulkowski's paintings may best be described as a Fusion of masterful l6th and 17th century Italian and Flemish techniques with a brilliant contemporary flair for expressive brushwork and luminous color that energizes his work. He is a life member of the Art Students League of New York, the American Artists Professional League, the National Society of Mural Painters and the National Arts Club, New York.
