RICHARD JOHNSON— The luminescent beauty and lyrical quality of Richard S Johnson's work is what captivates collectors today. Old Masters technical virtuosity, pre-Raphael romanticism, and contemporary expressionism and abstraction all combine to create his unique works of touching depth and artistry.

Born in Chicago to an artistic family, his earliest reminiscences are of pouring through Charles Dana Gibson, NC Wyeth, and John Singer Sargent books on rainy afternoons. While still in grade school, he won a scholarship to the prestigious Art Institute of Chicago. He later attended the American Academy of Art and upon graduation began a very successful career as an illustrator before becoming an award-winning fine artist.

Johnson's sure brush strokes, bold use of color and impasto, and delicate rendering of the human face and form all work together in harmony to create "Poetic Intimacy."

"When I paint, it is my hope to reach beyond the canvas and engage the viewer, to connect on the shared plane of experiences, to nod together and say, "Yes, that is what youth is like, that is what a rose is like, that is what morning light feels like." I seek to create shared moments." Richard Johnson \
