    Art Brokerage: Larry Gluck American Artist: Lawrence Jerrold Gluck was born to Maurice and Jane Gluck, a pharmacist and homemaker, on April 9, 1931. By age thirteen, he was studying under the Italian portrait master Giuseppe Trotta, an old classmate of Picasso himself. For three solid years Larry worked under the eccentric master. Trotta had an uncanny ability to bring someone to life on canvas and passed much of his wisdom on to the young apprentice. During these formative years, Larry was inspired to become a portrait painter in earnest. After graduating high school, Larry pursued his dream by attending the nation's most prestigious art school. He found, however, an institution more dedicated to modern fads and abstract theories than to fine art. The classical, "representational" art that had pervaded civilization and inspired culture for thousands of years was now deemed irrelevant, defunct… passé. He soon gave up on the idea that he could succeed as an artist. After earning a Bachelor of Arts degree at Adelphi College, there was a brief stint as an Assistant Art Director for the largest fashion advertising agency in New York, followed by work as a freelance advertising designer on Madison Avenue. Perhaps it was a godsend, because out of necessity, Larry picked up a brush and set his easel in the sand. His subject: the islands themselves, and in terms of medium, Larry explained, "it was only watercolor with its intrinsic beauty of transparency and pure color that could capture the radiance and excitement of St. Thomas." It wasn't long before the radiance and excitement expressed through his work caught the eye of locals and visitors alike. Original paintings only. Listings wanted.
