He spent many years perfecting his personal technique, but never forgot the influence of the Impressionists, which he loved as a boy.In 1985 he completed his high school studies at a school for the arts and was subsequently admitted to Krivoi Rog University in the south of the Ukraine. During these years he exhibited extensively and built a solid name for himself as a respected artist. In 1989 he was accepted into the Ukrainian Artists Guild. As soon as the ?Iron Curtain? was opened in the USSR, Metlan and his family made the decision to immigrate to Israel.Since that time, Metlan has exhibited in one-man and group shows worldwide. During the summer seasons he travels to Europe and particularly enjoys visiting the villages in France and Italy from which he receives his inspiration.

The Japanese Kimono by Evan Wilson

Lot 1252S: The Japanese Kimono by Evan Wilson

by Artistic Holdings Company

April 19, 2014

Las Vegas, NV, USA

Estimated Price: $1,900 - $2,375

Description: The Japanese Kimono by Evan Wilson - Edition Size: 250 - Giclee on Canvas - Signed & Numbered Dimensions: 30 x 40 Release Date: 9-2010 ???.Evan Wilson exhibited an interest in and a talent for art at an early age. The young, budding artist was provided with painting materials by a family friend, inspiring a creative journey that would be the lifelong pursuit of his calling. Wilson has a well-rounded education in art, enabling him to hone his outstanding skills. In 1971, the artist enrolled at the prestigious North Carolina School of the Arts, where he experimented with various styles and also completed high school. He then attended the Maryland Institute?s College of Art in Baltimore, which brought him under the tutelage of Joseph Sheppard, an internationally-known realist painter. Sheppard became Wilson?s lifelong mentor; under his training, the artist began his evolution as a realist painter. After college, Wilson studied at the Schuler School of Fine Arts in Baltimore. In 1978, an exciting opportunity enhanced Wilson?s education when he was awarded the Greenshields Foundation grant to study painting in Florence, Italy. Since the early days of Wilson?s education and throughout his stellar career, he has refined his technique, using broad brushstrokes to create paintings that are immediate and of the moment. A master of painting light and its effects on objects, Wilson often incorporates swatches of sunlight in his interiors. The artist has a command of extraordinary skills that allow him to take everyday objects and scenes and make them elegant. Wilson says, "?.the fun comes when playing with traditional concepts to create something entirely new.? The artist will take casual as sunflowers and place them in silver and porcelain vases for a fresh interpretation. Wilson?s strong traditional training to paint what he sees enabled him to paint a wide array of subjects. The artist continually seeks new subjects and vibrant ways to depict them; his favorite canvases capture interiors, florals, figures, landscapes, and portraits. He extended the realism tradition into a new realm by painting a series of scenes depicting baptisms in the famous Gees Bend area of his home state of Alabama. These works have a timeless, spiritual quality that viewers respond to with emotion. In 2001, one of these paintings was featured in a solo exhibition at the Huntsville Museum of Art, becoming part of the museum?s permanent collection. The artist remains true to his mission to bring realist painting back to the forefront of American art. He recently participated in organizing an exhibition titled "Legacy: A Tradition Lives On,? which is on a three-year, nationwide tour of museums. Wilson?s works are exhibited with eleven other artists. Wilson has had numerous solo showings across the country and participated in many group exhibits from north to south and east to west in America. The artist?s many honors and awards commenced in 1978 and have continued; in 2006, he received the William Bouguereau Award for Emotion, Theme and The Figure at the Art Renewal Center?s Annual Salon. His works are represented in galleries in Nantucket, Charleston, and New Orleans. Wilson?s paintings are in the collections of several public institutions. The artist and his family reside in upstate New York in an early 19th-century home, which is often the subject of his paintings. He also returns to Alabama for inspiration for many of his images.

Peace! Be Still! by James Seward

Lot 1292S: Peace! Be Still! by James Seward

by Artistic Holdings Company

April 19, 2014

Las Vegas, NV, USA

Estimated Price: $3,200 - $4,000

Description: Peace! Be Still! by James Seward - Edition Size: 35 - Giclee on Canvas - Grande Edition Dimensions: 30 x 45 Release Date: 11-2008 ???.James Seward was born in Alabama, and raised in Tennessee. He spent summers with his grandparents in the wild back-country of Alabama. When he was six, his grandfather bought him his first set of oil paints, and as a young child he often painted his grandparents by lamp-light, to their great astonishment. "From the time I was five years old, I was continually painting and drawing in that great environment,? the artist remembers with fondness. After military service, Seward spent a year studying art under Howard Boyd Johnson at Watkins Institute in Nashville. In 1947, he enrolled at the Art Institute of Chicago, where he met his wife, Lyn. A year later they were married. After graduation, Seward apprenticed at two Chicago commercial art studios, but in 1954, the family moved to the midwest. After a year with an agency, he joined Union Gospel Press for the next six years. Since that time, Seward has been self-employed as a freelance illustrator and painter and has created works for most of the large protestant denominations including Standard Publishing in Cincinnati, the Methodists and Baptists in Nashville, the Concordia Lutherans in St. Louis, and the Nazarene Publishing House. Although the artist had attended church since childhood, after leaving for the Navy in 1944, he dropped his church attendance. In 1953, two former friends with whom he?d lost contact felt moved to pray for his salvation. And in 1954 when he and his family attended church with a neighbor, Jim and Lyn gave their lives to Christ.. Currently Jim is an ordained minister for the "Christ-Life Fellowship? headquartered in Dallas, Texas. He has spoken around the United States as well as in South Africa. He writes articles, makes teaching tapes and works on religious books. His religious paintings express his passion for Christ. Seward has completed over 22 illustrations for a Doubleday book entitled, Ancient Greece. In 1987 and 1989, he was one of 100 artists from around the country picked for the National Arts in the Parks Competition. James E. Seward has been commissioned for portraitures by many organizations. His paintings grace the walls of such companies as the General Motors Corporation, the Wells Fargo Bank, The McDonald Investment Company, and the Will Rogers Museum in Oklahoma. "I try not only to inform, but to move and delight with my artwork?I want the viewer to have an emotional reaction to each painting. That?s what makes it a work of art rather than just an illustration.? - James E. Seward James Seward passed away in December 2011

Arroyo Respite by Bill Anton

Lot 1297S: Arroyo Respite by Bill Anton

by Artistic Holdings Company

April 19, 2014

Description: Arroyo Respite by Bill Anton - Edition Size: 95 - Giclee on Canvas - Signed & Numbered Dimensions: 29 x 45 Release Date: 10-2004 ???.Bill Anton was born in Chicago in 1957 and later moved to Prescott, Arizona. He graduated from Northern Arizona University. Later, after committing to painting full-time, he studied under Michael Lynch and Ned Jacob, who encouraged him to paint from life. ?While the nature of my work necessitates much studio time, more and more of my painting is done outside.? Anton?s work has been published in Southwest Art, Architectural Digest, Art of the West, Equine Images, Western Horseman and Art-Talk. Corporate collections that include his work are Sears, Dupont, State Farm Insurance, Bank of America, Hewlett Packard, and Trust Company of the West. His award winning work has been displayed at the Prix de West at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum, Masters of the American West at The Autry Museum, The National Center for American Western Art, the Old West Museum, and The National Museum of Wildlife Art. In addition, his work is in the permanent collection of the prestigious Gilcrease Museum. ?I do not see myself as a biographer of the cowboy. I know some artists feel they are recording history on the ranches as life there is today, but the focus of my work has always been mood and passion. If I?m recording anything, I?m recording how I feel about the west. I want the viewer to feel the drama of atmosphere and the mystery of a western night. I want the volume and portent of a cloud to be evident in the calligraphy of a brushstroke. The pack of muscle below a horse?s shoulder should be energized by a gestural application of paint. ?You see, I love to paint. And I love the American west. I was born in Chicago, but the Sierra Nevada, Sangre de Cristo, Sawatch and a hundred other ranges of our rocky mountains were the only ?Big Shoulders? I was ever interested in. Walking thunderstorms, sunstruck cedars, rimrock and artfully abstract water patterns charge the landscape with impossible beauty. ?Amidst this nobility is its caretaker: the rancher. With the natural ease of generations bred to the saddle, he is a powerful image further ennobled by a fine horse. An artist under the spell of the west has the privilege of marshalling the virtues of landscape, figure andequine painting into one supremely paintable subject: the American cowboy.? - Bill Anton

Sheppard became Wilson?s lifelong mentor; under his training, the artist began his evolution as a realist painter. After college, Wilson studied at the Schuler School of Fine Arts in Baltimore. In 1978, an exciting opportunity enhanced Wilson?s education when he was awarded the Greenshields Foundation grant to study painting in Florence, Italy. Since the early days of Wilson?s education and throughout his stellar career, he has refined his technique, using broad brushstrokes to create paintings that are immediate and of the moment. A master of painting light and its effects on objects, Wilson often incorporates swatches of sunlight in his interiors. The artist has a command of extraordinary skills that allow him to take everyday objects and scenes and make them elegant. Wilson says, "?.the fun comes when playing with traditional concepts to create something entirely new.? The artist will take casual as sunflowers and place them in silver and porcelain vases for a fresh interpretation. Wilson?s strong traditional training to paint what he sees enabled him to paint a wide array of subjects. The artist continually seeks new subjects and vibrant ways to depict them; his favorite canvases capture interiors, florals, figures, landscapes, and portraits. He extended the realism tradition into a new realm by painting a series of scenes depicting baptisms in the famous Gees Bend area of his home state of Alabama. These works have a timeless, spiritual quality that viewers respond to with emotion. In 2001, one of these paintings was featured in a solo exhibition at the Huntsville Museum of Art, becoming part of the museum?s permanent collection. The artist remains true to his mission to bring realist painting back to the forefront of American art. He recently participated in organizing an exhibition titled "Legacy: A Tradition Lives On,? which is on a three-year, nationwide tour of museums. Wilson?s works are exhibited with eleven other artists. Wilson has had numerous solo showings across the country and participated in many group exhibits from north to south and east to west in America. The artist?s many honors and awards commenced in 1978 and have continued; in 2006, he received the William Bouguereau Award for Emotion, Theme and The Figure at the Art Renewal Center?s Annual Salon. His works are represented in galleries in Nantucket, Charleston, and New Orleans. Wilson?s paintings are in the collections of several public institutions. The artist and his family reside in upstate New York in an early 19th-century home, which is often the subject of his paintings. He also returns to Alabama for inspiration for many of his images.

Estimated Price: $190 - $240

Description: Rejoice in the Lord by James Seward - Edition Size: Open - Giclee on Canvas, Open Edition Signed Dimensions: 11 x 14 Release Date: 1-2012 ???.James Seward was born in Alabama, and raised in Tennessee. He spent summers with his grandparents in the wild back-country of Alabama. When he was six, his grandfather bought him his first set of oil paints, and as a young child he often painted his grandparents by lamp-light, to their great astonishment. "From the time I was five years old, I was continually painting and drawing in that great environment,? the artist remembers with fondness. After military service, Seward spent a year studying art under Howard Boyd Johnson at Watkins Institute in Nashville. In 1947, he enrolled at the Art Institute of Chicago, where he met his wife, Lyn. A year later they were married. After graduation, Seward apprenticed at two Chicago commercial art studios, but in 1954, the family moved to the midwest. After a year with an agency, he joined Union Gospel Press for the next six years. Since that time, Seward has been self-employed as a freelance illustrator and painter and has created works for most of the large protestant denominations including Standard Publishing in Cincinnati, the Methodists and Baptists in Nashville, the Concordia Lutherans in St. Louis, and the Nazarene Publishing House. Although the artist had attended church since childhood, after leaving for the Navy in 1944, he dropped his church attendance. In 1953, two former friends with whom he?d lost contact felt moved to pray for his salvation. And in 1954 when he and his family attended church with a neighbor, Jim and Lyn gave their lives to Christ.. Currently Jim is an ordained minister for the "Christ-Life Fellowship? headquartered in Dallas, Texas. He has spoken around the United States as well as in South Africa. He writes articles, makes teaching tapes and works on religious books. His religious paintings express his passion for Christ. Seward has completed over 22 illustrations for a Doubleday book entitled, Ancient Greece. In 1987 and 1989, he was one of 100 artists from around the country picked for the National Arts in the Parks Competition. James E. Seward has been commissioned for portraitures by many organizations. His paintings grace the walls of such companies as the General Motors Corporation, the Wells Fargo Bank, The McDonald Investment Company, and the Will Rogers Museum in Oklahoma. "I try not only to inform, but to move and delight with my artwork?I want the viewer to have an emotional reaction to each painting. That?s what makes it a work of art rather than just an illustration.? - James E. Seward James Seward passed away in December 2011

The Personality Of Each Horse And Their Motion Can Be Clearly Seen: The Strong Second-in-command Just Behind The Leader, Jockeying For Position; The Skittish And Focused Chestnut And The Haughty, Almost Balletic Grays At The Borders Of The Group. Considered Individually, The Horses Are Magnificent; But As Bonnie Marris Paints Them, As A Herd In Motion, They Are Breathtaking.??about The Artist - Bonnie Marris Bonnie Marris Has Taken An Unusual Path Into Art; She Developed Her Talent By Portraying Animals ?from The Inside Out.?

Description: Winter Sanctuary by Matthew Hillier - Edition Size: 15 - Giclee on Canvas - Artist Proof Dimensions: 24 x 36 Release Date: 5-2004 ???.Matthew Hillier?s extraordinary wildlife paintings offer the viewer a unique vantage point. His paintings express more than the physical characteristics of a species; they reveal the artist?s passion for his subjects. Although he now resides in the U. S., Hillier was born in Buckinghamshire, England, in 1958 and has spent most of his life on the south coast of England. Drawing and painting animals is something he has loved to do since he was a child. Hillier?s father was a museum designer who taught his son the rudiments of painting with watercolor, a medium Hillier used during his years as an illustrator, along with gouache. He is now best known for his acrylic paintings, although he loves the challenge of oils. Traveling widely in search of subjects to study and paint, Hillier has visited Africa many times, and he has traveled to India, other parts of Europe and throughout Southeast Asia. He loves the big cats and rhinos and finds himself drawn to water birds. Since moving to the United States, he has begun painting North American subjects in addition to the dramatic African and bird subjects for which he is renowned. Hillier studied at Dyfed College of Art in Carmarthen, West Wales, graduating with distinction. Three of his paintings were accepted by the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition before his 18th birthday, and he has exhibited regularly at the Pastel Society. He is a member of the Society of Wildlife Artists, the Society of Animal Artists, The Royal Institute and the Miniature Society, as well as the Paris Salon, the Royal Society of Marine Artists and the Biarritz Salon. In addition, he has participated in the Christie?s Wildlife Auction. He has been selected to exhibit at the prodigious ?Birds in Art? exhibition at the Leigh Yawkey Woodson for many years. He has had one-man exhibitions throughout Great Britain and has illustrated many books and magazines. In 1995, he won the World Wildlife Fund Fine Art Award. In 1998, he received The People?s Choice Award from The Florida Wildlife and Western Art Expo. He was also a Featured Artist at that show in 1999. In 1997, 1998, and 2001, Hillier received The Society of Animal Artists? Award of Excellence. He received the People?s Choice Award at the Plainsmen Gallery/Raymond James Financial in 2002 and 2004. IN 2003, he won the ?Artists for the Next Century? Publishers Award at the Bennington Art Museum in Vermont. He has appeared on the cover of Wildlife Art Magazine in 2000 and 2003, In 2002, one of his paintings was chosen by US Art as one of their top 50 paintings of that year. For many years he was a regular contributor to the Guinness Book of Records illustrating the wildlife section. Hillier spent two years illustrating The Rhinoceros, a monograph published by Basilisk Press. This entailed traveling to Africa and Sumatra to study rhinos, after which he produced 20 large plates of portraits and paintings of five species of rhino, in addition to behavioral sketches. ?Rhinos are,? he says, ?wonderful subjects to paint.? Teaching is becoming an important part of Hillier?s life now. He has taught ?Life Painting? for several years at Montgomery College in Maryland and taught a Wildlife Art Workshop at the Beartooth School of Art in Montana. He lives in Maryland with his wife, (wildlife artist) Julia Rogers, two stepchildren and their young son, not to mention two ?ghastly? Chihuahuas and a fat cat.

Down by the Water by Evan Wilson

Lot 1794S: Down by the Water by Evan Wilson

by Artistic Holdings Company

April 19, 2014

Las Vegas, NV, USA

Estimated Price: $350 - $440

Description: Down by the Water by Evan Wilson - Edition Size: 25 - Giclee on Paper - Artist Proof Dimensions: 18 x 24 Release Date: 4-2010 ???.Evan Wilson exhibited an interest in and a talent for art at an early age. The young, budding artist was provided with painting materials by a family friend, inspiring a creative journey that would be the lifelong pursuit of his calling. Wilson has a well-rounded education in art, enabling him to hone his outstanding skills. In 1971, the artist enrolled at the prestigious North Carolina School of the Arts, where he experimented with various styles and also completed high school. He then attended the Maryland Institute?s College of Art in Baltimore, which brought him under the tutelage of Joseph Sheppard, an internationally-known realist painter. Sheppard became Wilson?s lifelong mentor; under his training, the artist began his evolution as a realist painter. After college, Wilson studied at the Schuler School of Fine Arts in Baltimore. In 1978, an exciting opportunity enhanced Wilson?s education when he was awarded the Greenshields Foundation grant to study painting in Florence, Italy. Since the early days of Wilson?s education and throughout his stellar career, he has refined his technique, using broad brushstrokes to create paintings that are immediate and of the moment. A master of painting light and its effects on objects, Wilson often incorporates swatches of sunlight in his interiors. The artist has a command of extraordinary skills that allow him to take everyday objects and scenes and make them elegant. Wilson says, "?.the fun comes when playing with traditional concepts to create something entirely new.? The artist will take casual as sunflowers and place them in silver and porcelain vases for a fresh interpretation. Wilson?s strong traditional training to paint what he sees enabled him to paint a wide array of subjects. The artist continually seeks new subjects and vibrant ways to depict them; his favorite canvases capture interiors, florals, figures, landscapes, and portraits. He extended the realism tradition into a new realm by painting a series of scenes depicting baptisms in the famous Gees Bend area of his home state of Alabama. These works have a timeless, spiritual quality that viewers respond to with emotion. In 2001, one of these paintings was featured in a solo exhibition at the Huntsville Museum of Art, becoming part of the museum?s permanent collection. The artist remains true to his mission to bring realist painting back to the forefront of American art. He recently participated in organizing an exhibition titled "Legacy: A Tradition Lives On,? which is on a three-year, nationwide tour of museums. Wilson?s works are exhibited with eleven other artists. Wilson has had numerous solo showings across the country and participated in many group exhibits from north to south and east to west in America. The artist?s many honors and awards commenced in 1978 and have continued; in 2006, he received the William Bouguereau Award for Emotion, Theme and The Figure at the Art Renewal Center?s Annual Salon. His works are represented in galleries in Nantucket, Charleston, and New Orleans. Wilson?s paintings are in the collections of several public institutions. The artist and his family reside in upstate New York in an early 19th-century home, which is often the subject of his paintings. He also returns to Alabama for inspiration for many of his images.

While She Was A Student At Michigan State University, Bonnie Illustrated Several Major Books. One Volume She Worked On Was A Leading Expert?s Mammalogy Text That Contained Several Hundred Drawings And Detail Studies.

In 1980, One Such Voyage Took Her To Alaska, Where She Lived In The Wilderness For Six Months. She Recounts, ?to Get Into A Natural Environment And See The Animals On Their Own Terms Is As Important As Knowing The Animals Themselves. For Instance, Gray Wolves On The Tundra?the Vast, Vast Tundra With The Wind And Other Forces Of Nature At Their Most Extreme?that?s What Makes Them What They Are. To Stand Not Far From A Grizzly That Is So Overpowering, So Beautiful And So Large . . . To Watch It Pull Up A Small Tree With A Swipe Of Its Paw And Just A Few Minutes Later See It Delicately Picking Blueberries With Its Black Lips. . . Alaska Changed Me; It Gave Me The Biggest Incentive To Paint And Increased My Interest In The Predators: The Cats, Bears, Coyotes, Wolves And Foxes. They Exist On So Many Levels. Their Moods Show In Their Eyes And We Can Learn So Much From Them.?

This is My Body by James Seward - Full Image

Lot 1800S: This is My Body by James Seward - Full Image

Estimated Price: $540 - $680

Description: This is My Body by James Seward - Full Image - Edition Size: Open - Giclee on Canvas, Open Edition Dimensions: 16 x 32 Release Date: 11-2011 ???.James Seward was born in Alabama, and raised in Tennessee. He spent summers with his grandparents in the wild back-country of Alabama. When he was six, his grandfather bought him his first set of oil paints, and as a young child he often painted his grandparents by lamp-light, to their great astonishment. "From the time I was five years old, I was continually painting and drawing in that great environment,? the artist remembers with fondness. After military service, Seward spent a year studying art under Howard Boyd Johnson at Watkins Institute in Nashville. In 1947, he enrolled at the Art Institute of Chicago, where he met his wife, Lyn. A year later they were married. After graduation, Seward apprenticed at two Chicago commercial art studios, but in 1954, the family moved to the midwest. After a year with an agency, he joined Union Gospel Press for the next six years. Since that time, Seward has been self-employed as a freelance illustrator and painter and has created works for most of the large protestant denominations including Standard Publishing in Cincinnati, the Methodists and Baptists in Nashville, the Concordia Lutherans in St. Louis, and the Nazarene Publishing House. Although the artist had attended church since childhood, after leaving for the Navy in 1944, he dropped his church attendance. In 1953, two former friends with whom he?d lost contact felt moved to pray for his salvation. And in 1954 when he and his family attended church with a neighbor, Jim and Lyn gave their lives to Christ.. Currently Jim is an ordained minister for the "Christ-Life Fellowship? headquartered in Dallas, Texas. He has spoken around the United States as well as in South Africa. He writes articles, makes teaching tapes and works on religious books. His religious paintings express his passion for Christ. Seward has completed over 22 illustrations for a Doubleday book entitled, Ancient Greece. In 1987 and 1989, he was one of 100 artists from around the country picked for the National Arts in the Parks Competition. James E. Seward has been commissioned for portraitures by many organizations. His paintings grace the walls of such companies as the General Motors Corporation, the Wells Fargo Bank, The McDonald Investment Company, and the Will Rogers Museum in Oklahoma. "I try not only to inform, but to move and delight with my artwork?I want the viewer to have an emotional reaction to each painting. That?s what makes it a work of art rather than just an illustration.? - James E. Seward James Seward passed away in December 2011
