Judy Nimtz, American Art Collector, June 2018
Fabric and Flesh
For her newest work, California painter Judy Nimtz went big. Life-size big. "I've always loved the larger-scale paintings, the society portraits by John Singer Sargent, Thomas Eakins and even Anthony van Dyck. I'm not so much painting society portraits, but I loved that scale of the figures," Nimtz says from her Venice Beach studio, adding that she's creating works as tall as 72 inches and beyond."It was nerve racking going that large. Even physically, just getting your arm to the top of the painting is a new thing for me. Its very physical painting that big"
