Barry DeBaun was born 1956 in Brooklyn, NY, raised in Long Island untill ten and then moved to the Catskills where he still resides. With the beauty of the mountains surrounding him and his early exposure to the ocean, we are not surprised to find his inspiration comes from his love of nature. Poetic landscapes, sensitive figures, realistically rendered still life and moody seascapes, place him as a true American Romanticist.
Working proficiently in both oils and watercolor, his work is reminiscent of 19th century painting. Influenced by the Hudson River School, the Pre-Raphaelite's and the American Impressionists. As with Thomas Cole in the mid-1800's, Mr DeBaun is continuing the legacy of traditional painting in the Catskills and beyond.
