Jacob Collins

American artist, born 1964. He describes himself as "a leading figure in the contemporary revival of classical painting." Which begs a whole lot of questions (leading? classical?) but at least it makes his ambition clear. All of these are from his web site. Above, Glasses, 2011.

For some reason none of the landscapes on his web site seem to have titles or dates. But it's not my fault!

Leah, 2012.

Another landscape.

Male figure, 2012.

I very much like his still lifes.

Leah -- the model must have been *very* uncomfortable b/c that's a totally unnatural position for a woman to maintain for any length of time.
