Donald Jurney
As it is in England

About the Item

This is an original oil painting by master painter, Donald Jurney. The project was one near and dear to the artist's heart. A lover of books, Jurney rescued a number of old, cloth-bound books from oblivion, giving them new life by adding a painting to the cover of each. Framed and mounted in a simple white frame, these little works of art are perfect for a library, or a gift for a bibliophile. Please see our other listings to see the whole collection. Donald Jurney (b. 1945) was educated at Columbia University, the Pratt Institute, and the Art Students League. His career has included over twenty-five one-person shows in San Francisco, New York, Boston and elsewhere. Works by Mr. Jurney hang in prominent corporate and private collections in the US and abroad. Jurney's work is influenced by his time spent living and working in the Hudson River Valley, England, France, Ireland and in the Berkshires of western Massachusetts. He currently maintains a studio in Massachusetts. His work is a tapestry woven from a lifetime of experience in drawing and painting, and from careful understanding and observation of the world around us. "Donald Jurney's painted landscapes offer the viewer a soothing, silent, scenic respite from the burdens of modernity. No signs of technology or urban life mar his pastoral vision...It is as if we have been transported to another time and place--and indeed we have." -Janice Simon, Josiah Meigs Distinguished Associate Professor of Art History, University of Georgia “Often a painting is a conversation between disparate shapes and forms…here brilliant, there disguised---in a carefully-conceived dance of light. This may be a celebration of a place, perhaps, or an investigation of an evanescent mood. For the viewer who has both the time and inclination to really look, one hopes to afford, by way of a painted surface wrought of subtleties, the opportunity to explore at leisure the wonder of the world in which we live.” - Donald Jurney
