A Moment Past: L.F. Tantillo Paints New York History

L. F. Tantillo, Manhattan Sunset, 2013, oil on canvas, 20 x 30, collection of Clara and Larry Sanders

April 1–December 31, 2014

Len Tantillo brings the past to life through his remarkable historically accurate paintings. Much of his work celebrates maritime themes, focusing on little-known subject matter depicting the early history of New York State and the Hudson River. Taking pride in the small details, he meticulously researches his subjects to formulate what eventually comes to life on the canvas, creating an extremely realistic piece.

Widely collected, his work has appeared in national exhibitions, books, periodicals, and television documentaries in the United States, England, Netherlands, Belgium, Australia and New Zealand.
