ADOLF SEHRING was born in Russia to a Russian mother and German father, an art Director in the GermanMovie Industry. Young Adolf won various prizes and honors in art competition and studied at The Art Academy.
His work are in the Victoria and Albert Museum, Grand Palais in Paris, U.S. Embassy to Sweden, Chrysler Museum, Mellons, Temple University, Museum of St. Mary's, Bayly Museum of Virginia, Hamilton Insurance Co., U.S. State Department and the Vatican, among many other private and public collections.
Like the 17th century Dutch masters, Adolf Sehring transforms everyday scenes into poetry. His panoramic landscapes filled with nuances of detail and atmosphere, celebrate the countryside and extol the serenity of rural life. In his commonplace objects--hand-woven baskets, rail fences, rustic barns, and ordinary people become extraordinary. He is an eloquent spokesman for realism and one of America's most collected painters. While Sehring's art is in the tradition of Barbizon landscape artists, capturing a moment in time and recreating the exact hour of today in circumstances of light, his paintings are more than reproductions of atmosphere.
They are penetrating observations of nature and human character tingled with an uplifting quality. His work shimmers with a sense of discovery, a renewal of life, revealed with the brightness of his palate, and in the faces, which people his canvasses. Part of the business of art, as Santayana says of music, is to remind us, and Sehring's paintings are masterful reminders of our rural past. There is nostalgia in the unspoiled slices of America that our grandparents knew in the still ponds, thick woods and flowered creek sides, in cloud skimming skies and gentle rolling hills.
