Painting in the tradition of the old masters, Lionel Kalish draws his inspiration from the gardens, waterways and villages of Italy. His paintings and finely wrought drawings depict scenes of landscape and architecture that evoke the Renaissance in their subject matter, yet are shot through with a quiet, dream-like quality that unmoors them from time. The clarity and hyperrealism of Kalish’s work also enhances this quality. Kalish was born in New York, New York and received his artistic training at Cooper Union. He has been exhibiting his work nationally and internationally since 1975.
