"Overlooking Horn Point"

Circa 2000

About

Here is a beautiful oil on canvas painting by acclaimed artist Dennis Perrin. Signed lower right and housed in a gold leaf frame. Overall measurements framed 41.5 by 29.5 inches. Gifted and prolific, the hand of Perrin is instantly recognizable in his floral compositions, interior genre scenes, outdoor still lives, figures in the landscape, and other beautiful subject matter. Because he works strictly from life, without the use of cameras, his paintings are alive with the impressionistic beauty of the subject and strike a deep and resonant chord. Dennis studied with Dell Weller and Auzeklis Ozols at the New Orleans Academy of Fine Art, where he won the 1984 Landscape Painting Award. He began painting professionally in 1985, exhibiting his work widely and receiving numerous awards and purchase prizes. Perrin’s work has been collected throughout North America, as well as in Europe and Australia. Among his many collectors are the Zigler Museum, The Maier Museum of Art, The Morris Museum of Art, City National Bank of Louisiana, The Entergy Corporation, and Dale Brown, former head basketball coach, Louisiana State University. The trademark and signature of Perrin’s work is a masterful treatment of light. Whether the subject is a lithe figure clad in white, a sumptuous floral still life, a moody interior, or a quiet pond dotted with water lilies, light is the dominant feature of a Dennis Perrin painting. In this he follows the great tradition of the Boston School Painters including those in the original Ten American Painters. Other favorite influences include Jan Vermeer, Thomas Dewing and Maxfield Parrish. By marrying sound academic principles of drawing and design with brilliant color and dazzling light, Dennis Perrin creates beautiful and memorable images that both complement and transcend the high velocity, high-tech whirl of the modern age.
