Randy Van Beek
Most of his attention was focused on the eighteenth century Dutch and Austrian masters, and the nineteenth century American painters particularly the Hudson River School group. The time spent in museums in the U.S. and Europe also proved invaluable to his artistic development. His work has evolved into a unique style truly his own, but the influence of the masters is very evident. His strong designs, poetic compositions and beautiful light stir the emotions, carrying the viewer to a peaceful world of beauty and nostalgia.
