The Sporting Life – The Art of Joseph Sulkowski
240 pages, Hardcover with Dust Jacket
Whether it’s still-lifes, dog paintings, or scenes of hunters and anglers, Joseph Sulkowski derives his inspiration from personal contact with the natural world. He carries out his visions through a lifelong discipline to his craft, in which hand-ground paints, carefully prepared oils and varnishes, and handcrafted linen canvases and gessoed panels play a vital role in the quality of each work of piece.
All this and more about the immensely gifted artist is detailed by author Brooke Chilvers, one of the foremost experts on wildlife and sporting art. Altogether, the large-format, 240-page book features more than 180 paintings and dozens of sketches.
