Jacob Collins

is a contemporary classical painter. He was trained in New York and Paris. He is known equally for his portraiture (having depicted J. Paul Getty Jr., President George W. Bush, and Supreme Court Chief Justice Warren Burger) and his landscapes and still lifes. Aiming to “paint with the skills of past masters while still feeling fresh,” Collins’ practice relies on rigorous observation and draftsmanship. His bold treatment of light renders his works at once immediate and exuding a sense of timelessness. Collins has founded multiple painting ateliers in the tradition of the French academy.
