Peter Layne Arguimbau


Peter Layne Arguimbau

Peter Layne Arguimbau paints in a specifically designed north light studio with shutters to direct the light source, modeled after the studios of the Dutch Masters. A light effect painter, Arguimbau grinds his own pigments from dry powders and cooks oil-resinous mediums to create paintings with deep, luminous transparencies, giving his work a true, old world quality. While Arguimbau paints a variety of subject matter including landscapes and animals, he specializes in powerful marinescapes featuring classic yachts.

Arguimbau has received numerous awards for his work, which hang in prestigious private and corporate collections all over the world. He currently maintains a personal gallery in Greenwich, Connecticut and continues to work in his 1850’s chestnut barn studio.
