Artist Steve Moppert
Steve Moppert, winner of the National Portrait Competition Grand Prize for Best in Show in 1981, has successfully balanced an active career as a portrait artist with one as a painter of landscapes, still lifes, and figurative works for more than 45 years. Always holding himself to the highest standards both in the polishing of his skills and production of his work he has consistently attained distinction in the mastery of his art.
Moppert attended the Art Students League of New York where he was under the tutelage of some of America’s most prominent artists. He extended his studies by travelling to Spain for an in-depth study of the Spanish master Joaquin Sorolla. Moppert believes that an artist should always challenge himself to grow and experience the fun of change. Working under that philosophy, in the early 1990s he studied at the Art Students League of Denver and while in Colorado was accepted into workshops conducted by some of our modern day masters.
His family portraits have graced homes across the United States and Mexico.
Moppert’s paintings are included in the permanent collections of the Mississippi Governor’s Mansion, the Mississippi State Historical Museum, Mississippi College, University of Mississippi Medical Center, and the Louisiana State University Medical Center. He most recently completed portraits for three institutions in Knoxville and Nashville, Tennessee. His subjects have included leading educators, scientists, physicians, and clergymen. His paintings have been featured in “Colorado Homes and Lifestyles,” “Mississippi Magazine,” and “International Artist Magazine.” He is a member of the Oil Painters of America.
