Margaret will discuss “A Simple Approach to Elegant Paintings”, five observations taught for 500 years to create master paintings, on Wednesday, April 24th at the Heritage Center. You don’t want to miss this opportunity to see Margaret share her knowledge and excellent skills in portraiture!
“Margaret Carter Baumgaertner’s notable commissions have included governors, congressman, chief executive officers, actors, physicians, and families.
Baumgaertner has a strong feeling for the traditions of portraiture and takes inspiration from the many American (Sargent, Decamp), European (Romney, Raeburn) and Russian (Kromskoy, Repin) Masters. Fine portraiture, she believes, “transcends contemporary elements and projects a timeless quality”. Baumgaertner majored in medical illustration and microbiology and worked eight years as a freelance medical illustrator before beginning her career in portraiture. She studied at Atelier Lack and the Cape School (Provincetown, Massachusetts) and well as with Cedric Egeli, John Howard Sanden, Richard Whitney and Daniel Greene. She is a member of the American Society of Portrait Artists. She teaches workshops in both charcoal and oil portraiture, and her paintings hang in public and private collections not only in the United States, but in Europe and Russia.
Margaret Carter Baumgaertner’s distinctive style reflects a type of portraiture that is dignified, finely executed, and always respectful of the traditions from which portrait art has risen.”
