David Dunlop


David Dunlop

David Dunlop is admired for his relentless pursuit of researching Old Masters by studying primary sources like the notebooks of Leonardo da Vinci and Leon Alberti's 1436 instruction book, "Della Pictura." An instructor in his own right, Dunlop pursues experimental methods and teaching techniques stretching back to the Renaissance.

"After seeing 17th Century Dutch and Italian paintings on copper and pietra dura (usually alabaster), I had to try my own hand at these variably reflective surfaces using the translucent oil painting techniques of the old masters. I was determined to use contemporary materials, steel and aluminum, as well as the more venerable copper and gold." - David Dunlop

The result is a modern vision structured with masterful, old world technique. Dunlop received his Masters of Fine Arts degree from the Pratt Institute, New York, NY, and studied post-graduate printmaking at the R. Blackburn Studio, New York, NY. David has won numerous awards in juried exhibitions, including a Daytime EMMY Award for his writing of a PBS series on painting techniques, "Landscapes Through Time."

David Dunlop's work is exhibited in galleries across the U.S., including Connecticut, Florida, Oregon, and Wisconsin, as well as in several corporate collections. He currently lives and works in Connecticut.
