Art Brokerage: Jean Richardson American Artist: Jean Richardson, was born in Hollis, Oklahoma. She has had a lifelong interest in Western "myth". Although she uses the contemporary vocabulary of modern painting, she finds deep connections to the frontier west. Richardson is best known for her large, abstract paintings of horses. She states," The image of the horse is the perfect vehicle to express my true subjects; motion and energy. The horse as a real being is lovely in itself and I enjoy the power, the speed, and the physical beauty of the animal. My paintings, however, take this real image and make it a symbol. The horse as a metaphor for the human spirit; unbridled, striving, sometimes heroic, often restless, full of energy, floating above us, calling us to other realms." Her works are found in numerous private, public and corporate collections throughout the U.S.
