David Loeb was born in 1953 and grew up in Chappaqua, New York.
His mother and her identical twin were both painters. He studied
with Gillian Pederson-Krag at Cornell University and with Reed Kay
at Boston University. He also received a scholarship to the Yale
Summer School of Art and Music, where he worked under Louis
Finkelstein and met Wolf Kahn and Philip Guston. Loeb attended
graduate school at Indiana University, Bloomington, where he studied
with Robert Barnes and Richard Ryan.
In 1985, Loeb was awarded a Fulbright grant to study Chartres
cathedral and Père Lachaise cemetery in association with the painter
Jean Hélion. Since then, he has divided his time between Paris and
New York. In 1993, he received a Krasner-Pollock Foundation Grant.
He has taught at the New York Academy of Art Graduate School and
at Parsons School of Design, Paris. Loeb shows extensively on both
sides of the Atlantic. He currently lives in Fontainebleau, France.
We now offer fine portraits for those who desire a family heirloom, a remembrance of someone special, a statement of one’s love. David Loeb has been painting portraits for 30+ years, and loves to do it. All
he requires of you is to get to know you a bit, a few photos, a year’s time and your trust that he will do a great job.
Rates depend on size of portrait, whether a head shot, a torso, full person, number of people in the portrait (families are great!), etc. He requests 50% down at the beginning, the rest to be paid upon completion.
