About the Artist

Fairfield Porter was one of the few realist painters working in the 1960’s and 70’s. The domesticity of French Post-Impressionist artists Eduoard Vuillard’s and Pierre Bonnard’s art provided inspiration for Porter. A Harvard educated WASP, Porter’s still life paintings and portraits of his family, circle of friends and his dog Creepo- as well as his homes on Long Island and on the coast of Maine are iconic.
Porter’s The Schooner II achieved a price just shy of $2,000,000 at the Christie’s Rockefeller sale, an indication that prices for fine works by the artist are continuing their upward trajectory.
