The Artist Says:

"I approach each painting as an opportunity to discover the truth of an individual's essence."

Collectors Say:

"The people of Long Island have a little known "jewel in their midst." I speak of Mrs. Nanette Fluhr, "Master Classic Portraiture" of Dix Hills, N.Y. Mrs Fluhr's uncompromising classic style is unrivaled in both technique and composition. I am no novice to the art community. Having a 40 year collection, as well as, being the recipient of two Smithsonian Awards in 1967 and 1969 I feel completely confident in stating that Nanette Fluhr is one of the finest Portrait Artists in the world. In 1998 Mrs. Fluhr completed a life size portrait of my wife, Cher. Few times in life does one's purchase have such a lasting sense of joy and beauty. I am looking forward to my daughter's portrait." –Bob Podesta

Nanette graduated from Rutgers University in 1987 and then went on to earn her BFA with Honors from the School of Visual Arts in New York City, where she received the Rhodes Family Award for Outstanding Achievement. There she met John Frederick Murray, who taught her drawing, painting and picture making skills gleaned from the techniques of the Old Masters. She is most grateful to him for the profound effect his wisdom and insight have had on her painting. Mr. Murray became her mentor, and under his tutelage she painted museum-quality replicas of old master paintings by  Lawrence, Le Brun, Rembrandt, Rubens, Velazquez and Van Dyke while she was a registered copyist with the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. This experience gave her the ability to carefully study these masterpieces and incorporate what she learned [...]
