Richard Judson Zolan (Born in 1931) established himself as one of most exceptional painters in America. He was an American Impressionist
born in Chicago, IL. He was an adherent to the principles of American and European impressionism. He graduated from the Art Institute of
Chicago, and later studied in New York City at the Art Students League. Zolan was a personal friend, and a student of Louis Rittman who was
an instructor. Rittman taught him the style and fundamental techniques of impressionism. Zolan was prolific, energetic, and enthusiastic
about his creativity. He became an artist for the love of creating and the recognition his art stems purely from the talent he exhibited. He
pursues his art with efficiency, precision, optimism and love. The most insidious quality of his posters, art, and prints is the unique synergy
he achieved in bringing to his canvas a glorious marriage of Renaissance with modern art.
Exhibiting internationally, Zolan lives as he paints, with creativity, vigor and verve. He is a new idea built upon an old tradition – truly what
America is all about. It is rare to encounter an artist like him whose career and life incorporate a bonding of his style’s phenomena. Zolan’s
prints, romantic art, and posters have become a standard for American Impressionism, an authentically distinct genre. Zolan loved to paint
and used his painting as a means of communicating his inner feelings to his audience. His art has found its way into many people’s homes,
and also into many art collections and galleries.
