Classical RealisM

Richard F. Lack is one of the most significant American realists of the second half of the 20th century. 

Lack's work exhibits those qualities which were highly prized by masters of the past: authoritative draftsmanship, balanced and harmonious composition and skillful craftsmanship.

By establishing The Atelier in Minneapolis, Lack provided students a crucial link to the artistic traditions

of Europe that rapidly disintegrated after the First World War.

It is no exaggeration to say that Lack has influenced thousands through his art, teaching and writing.

Lack coined the term "Classical Realism" and co-founded The American Society of Classical Realism. He founded the Classical Realism Quarterly and the Classical Realism Journal.
