Howard Behrens (1933-2014) was one of the world’s most famous living painters at the time of his death in 2014. His classical technique and captivating subject matter has made his artwork extremely popular among art collectors. Born in 1933 in Chicago, Behrens spent most of his youth in Washington D.C. and the latter part of his life . Like many successful artists, he began drawing at an early age. At 7, he was bedridden after a sledding accident and began to fall in love with art. He continued to paint through his childhood and teenage years, and pursued an art education at the University Of Maryland where he earned degrees in painting and sculpting. He was originally planning a career in medical illustration, but when his chosen program at John Hopkins University required a year wait period he decided to pursue commercial painting instead. He worked for years to develop his craft, and did not open his first solo exhibit until 1980. Howard Behrens’ paintings are feature a bold style and use rich, vibrant colors. They are simultaneously very life like but have a number of impressionist qualities. He was well known for his ability to manipulate textures. He achieved all these qualities in his art through the use of a pallet knife instead of a brush. In fact, the last time Howard Behrens picked up a paintbrush was in 1976. Critics widely consider his pallet knife technique and use of color the best among all post-impressionist painters. His style has been imitated by a large number of contemporary artists, but their work is never able to hold up to the fine example set by Behrens. Despite this recognition from art critics, Behrens was far more commercially successfully than critically. As one of the bestselling commercial artists in modern times, he had a highly successful commercial contract with Princess Cruises and he is the best performing artists in their history. While his work can be found in many museums, it is his success in private galleries, auctions, and programs that facilitate buying art online that he has been able to find the most success. Howard Behrens’ paintings often emphasize classic images of the Western World including European cities, beach scenes, and landscapes, along with images of women. Behrens was a great lover of travel, and he only painted things that he has seen in person. He especially loved coastal cities, gardens, and quaint street scenes. Behrens’ paintings have a distinct old world quality and they often appear both in subject matter and technique as if they are much older than they actually are. Behrens considered himself a romantic at heart, and it is obvious in his paintings. Behrens widespread commercial success is continuing to grow even posthumously. His art work is bestselling in the United States and Europe, which is to be expected as audiences there can relate most directly to the subject matter of his work. He produced a high volume of both original paintings and prints, which give more individual collector access to his priceless works of art at a greater range of prices. His prints have been extremely popular among private collectors.
