  • Biography

    Lincoln Perry was born in New York City in 1949, and received his education at Columbia University and Queens College. Described as “a figurative painter of narratives,” Perry’s elegantly crafted paintings have been compared to such European masters as Poussin, de Chirico and Balthus. In addition to his work as an easel painter, Perry is also a master muralist and sculptor. Many of Perry’s compositions consist of multiple panels (occasionally as many as twelve) that are affixed to create a single square or rectangular painting. These series of panels are a perfect form for this narrative painter whose images are fashioned to be viewed from multiple viewpoints and perspectives. Unfolding in a film-like sequence, Perry’s often allegorical images and storylines purposefully cultivate an ambiguity that engages the viewer both visually and intellectually. Rather than answers and solutions, Perry’s work is best known for the questions it asks and the possibilities it presents. A gifted draftsman known for his exquisite figures and masterful compositions, Perry is also a fine colorist. His paintings are saturated by a juxtaposition of vibrant hues that infuse even his smallest oils with a dynamic energy and powerful presence.

    Lincoln Perry is well known for his murals which include the masterful Cabell Hall Murals at the University of Virginia, as well as large murals for the Met Life building in St. Louis, 1700 Pennsylvania Avenue and Lincoln Square in Washington DC, the John Hancock building in Boston and for the Federal Courthouse in Tallahassee, Florida.
