The Sporting Life: The Art of Joseph H. Sulkowski Dust jacket book

The Sporting Life: The Art of Joseph H. Sulkowski is a celebration of gun dogs and horses, hunting and fishing as expressed through the rich and exuberant paintings of Joseph Sulkowski. Acclaimed as one of America’s premier dog and sporting artists, Sulkowski shares his personal conversation with the outdoor life in a style of Poetic Realism.

Influenced and guided by the hands of the Old Masters, he creates fluid brushstrokes that imbue his canvases with a compelling blend of light, atmosphere, and spatial effects that bring his passion for the sporting life into vivid focus for the viewer.

Whether it’s still-lifes, dog paintings, or scenes of hunters and anglers, Joseph Sulkowski derives his inspiration from personal contact with the natural world. He carries out his visions through a lifelong discipline to his craft, in which hand-ground paints, carefully prepared oils and varnishes, and handcrafted linen canvases and gessoed panels play a vital role in the quality of each work of art.

Brooke Chilvers, one of the foremost experts on wildlife and sporting art, authored this 240-page coffee table book which features more than 180 paintings and sketches.
