An example of fine art by RICHARD PANTELL



Richard Pantell grew up in New York City's northern borough of The Bronx. During those formative years he became acquainted with the masterworks in the city's art museums and galleries. It was also at this time that the imagery of the city's architecture, subways, billboards, and street life found its way into his earliest drawings and painting.
Pantell Studied at The Art Students League of New York and is largely self-taught. He spent years exploring the painting technique of oil glazing by studying incomplete paintings of past masters in museums here and abroad. Pantell also studied etching and spent five years working as a print restorer for galleries in New York City and the surrounding area. He moved to the art colony of Woodstock, NY in 1977.
The paintings and prints of Richard Pantell can be found in such collections as the Butler Institute of American Art, The Museum of the City of New York, The British Museum, and the Jewish Museum in Stockholm, Sweden. He has had over thirty solo exhibitions and has won awards at The National Academy, Allied Artists of America, Society of American Graphic Artists and many others. He is listed in Who’s Who in American Art and articles about his work have appeared in American Artist Magazine and The Journal of the Print World. His art has been reproduced in The New York Times and The Christian Science Monitor.
Pantell has been an instructor at The Art Students League of New York since 1996.
