David DunlopHost of the 2008 national PBS TV mini-series "Landscapes through Time with David Dunlop".
David Dunlop is a renowned landscape painter, art historian and lecturer, teacher and national television host.
His soft canvases of the lush landscapes of Europe, reminiscent of the romantic Hudson River School, and his brilliantly innovative paintings that employ 23kt gold leaf painted on linen, copper and aluminum, have earned him much recognition and a considerable following.
His creative work and techniques has been the subject of several major features in the New York Times. His illuminating teaching skills have been captured in how-to books and on DVDs. His skills as an art historian and presenter have led to invitations to lecture on landscape painting at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and to the hosting of a national television series.
The 13-part series Landscapes through Time with David Dunlop, which opens in June of 2008 and airs on PBSTV stations nationwide, follows David from New England to Provence as he takes viewers to the homes, studios and landscapes of some of the greatest American and French impressionists of the 20th century.
A Master of Fine Arts graduate of New York's Pratt Institute, David’s work is sought by collectors across the nation and is represented in more than 50 corporate collections including Aetna Insurance, Champion, Chemical Bank, Citibank, Colgate-Palmolive, Delta Airlines, Ernst & Young, Exxon, Fortune Brands, GE Capital, IBM, Merrill Lynch, Mobil Gas, NYNEX, PepsiCo, Reader’s Digest and Smith Barney as well as the U.S. State Department.
