Artist Bio:

Frank Lind is a realist painter of landscape, seascape, and figures. One of his series involves re-imagining the masters, as in inserting a modern-day nude figure into a Sargent composition. Also, in his Brooklyn studio, he has painted many pictures of one of his favorite muses, the Atlantic Ocean, particularly the shore at the tip of Long Island near Montauk. The flora and fauna of the seashore, the movement of the waves, and the play of light on water are the subjects of his work. Inspired by the painting practice of James Perry Wilson (who painted beautiful dioramas in the American Museum of Natural History In New York in the mid-20th century), his painting palette includes no tubes of green paint. As a result, all the greens in his paintings come from mixing blues, yellows, and other hues. Frank Lind's work has been shown extensively in New York City and internationally, and is included in many museums and private collections.
