About the Art
An original oil on canvas painting by premiere American Impressionist William Vincent Kirkpatrick. He employs thick, layered brushstrokes to create a highly textured impression of a New Mexican landscape. The contrast between the warmer and cooler colors in this piece is so perfect and balanced, it is a great example of Kirkpatrick’s skill with color. This piece is signed by the artist in the lower left corner.
William Vincent Kirkpatrick was born in St. Augustine, Florida in 1939 and began painting at 10. He then moved to Santa Fe, NM in 1956 where he later studied with acclaimed painter, Alfred Morang; tutoring the young Kirkpatrick with the techniques of the French Impressionists. The artist later enrolled at the Taos School of Art in 1962.
With the influence of Morang and other Taos/Santa Fe artists, Kirkpatrick’s works flourished in what is called the American Impressionistic style.
