Nelson Shanks

à ne pas montrer aux jeunes enfants !

(encore que...)

Mon traducteur refuse de traduire : vous allez être obligé d'imiter notre jeune Président qui parle (et lit) Anglais couramment : voici l'original : Nelson Shanks, né en 1937, année de l'exposition universelle de Paris, est le peintre de Madame Tatcher, de Regan ; Clinton, le pape... sans omettre Lady Diana et sa célèbre bague ornée d'un véritable saphir :

Nelson Shanks American painter -1937-2015, has served as professor at the University of the Arts and as distinguished visiting professor in Fine Arts at George Washington University in Washington, D.C. and conducted seminars at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and the New York Academy of Art and numerous universities. He has taught at the National Academy of Design and the Art Students League in New York, the Art Institute of Chicago, and Memphis Academy of Arts and the Robert and Mary Montgomery Armory Art Center in West Palm Beach, Florida. Arcadia University awarded him a Ph.D. in Fine Arts. "Advanced painting workshops taught by Nelson Shanks attract hundreds of artists from across the country." [Arts & Antiques, Summer 1997] He is clearly one of the most sought after teachers in the world and founder of the post-graduate school, Studio Incamminati.

Vous devinez que s'étant lui-même attardé sur de très jolies dames en petite tenue, elles aient attiré l'attention du public la mienne par voie de conséquence :


In Italy, he studied at the Accademia di Belle Arti in Florence and with Pietro Annigoni. He traveled and studied extensively throughout Europe. He has received grants: the Greenshields Foundation (twice) and the Stacey Foundation (three times) between l96l and l974. Earlier he studied at the University of Kansas and the Kansas City Art Institute with Wilbur Niewald and in New York at the National Academy of Design and The Art Students League with Ivan Olinsky, Robert Brackman, Edwin Dickinson and privately with John Koch and Henry Hensche.

Nelson Shanks, world-renowned painter, art historian, art teacher, connoisseur and collector, distilled the principles upon which Studio Incamminati stands from his lifelong experience and devotion to fine arts. Nelson, and his wife Leona Shanks, founded Studio Incamminati to provide a place where artists devoted to realism could study painting and acquire other skills necessary for successful artistic careers. When Nelson set out to become a painter, he pieced together his own education and training from the limited options available for the study of realist painting. As an 18-year-old student at New York’s famed Art Students League, he earned his tuition by serving as a monitor in the classes of artists such as Robert Brackman, Ivan Olinsky and Edwin Dickinson. Established painters such as John Koch took him on as a private student and provided substantial material as well as spiritual support of his dreams and aspirations.

je tente de me rattraper, avec le pape :

pardonne-nous nos péchés....

...on dira que c'est Eve !
