Andre Pater b.1953.
Born in Poland and graduated from the Cracow Academy of Fine Arts ‘summa cum laude.’ He relocated to the United States in 1981.
His reputation soon established, he moved to Kentucky in 1988 where he began to paint the powerful thoroughbreds which dominate the racing scene and, increasingly, scenes depicting racing, foxhunting, sporting dogs, cattle and wildlife.
Andre Pater’s work was the focus of a major London exhibition in July 2002, supported by some of the greatest names in the world of sporting art.
Thirty one paintings were on display at the exhibition, priced at up to £75,000 each. On the preview night, all 31 were sold in less than 30 minutes!
“Today Andre Pater is still working in the USA. His works are varied and he has an excellent following. Needless to say that his horse and hound paintings are extremely popular and highly collectible. My recommendation is to study his work, follow and collect whenever you can.”
