Like a Dream: Maurice Sapiro Grabs us with Astounding Landscapes

This is a special guest post from Daniel Dunt.

“Painting, like life, is a journey. And, as with any journey, it’s the people you meet along the way who leave the most lasting impressions. In my sixty-year journey as a painter, I have been fortunate. The dealers, patrons, and friends I have met have been the best.”

Born in New Jersey in 1932, Maurice Sapiro is an incredibly talented landscape, still life, and dreamscape painter, as well as a fine art photographer. The tone in Sapiro’s work reflects the condition, including light and weather, of the subject superbly, and Maurice’s talents for capturing a setting at the perfect time of day are flawless – always ensuring a breathtaking outcome. Landscape paintings are picture-postcard perfect, while experimental pour paintings intrigue and astound with an undeniable likeness to its real twin, despite the seemingly abstract technique.

Sapiro’s talents are reflected in his more than admirable collection of awards, including the Shortell Prize, Connecticut Watercolor Society Annual (1986), and the Hilda P. Levy Watercolor Prize, Paint & Clay Club Annual (1986, New Haven, Ct), to name a couple – not to mention Maurice’s countless exhibitions.

If it’s a strong contrast of sleepy and harsh tones you love, Maurice Sapiro is a talent to take note of.

You can check out more sublime Sapiro works on his website, or even purchase some beautiful prints and originals via Saatchi Art.
