Alex Schloss

American (1921–2011)

About the artist:

ALEX SCHLOSS was born in New York City and is a painter noted for his uniqueness of style... an almost 3 dimensional quality achieved with a careful texturing and layering of oil paint mixed with sand and marble dust. It is considered a mixed media oil painted frescoe. The richness is balanced by another technique, simplistically clean pastel-like portraitures, executed in oil on raw linen. Here he captures the character of life of the subjects with a minimum of strokes. He is known for his exquisite personal portraits. Alex Schloss has painted the personages of royalty including King Hassen II and The Royal Family of Morocco, Count Bonifazi of Italy & Monaco, as well as 'Woody Woodpecker' creator Walter Lantz. The well-known television and movie star, Herve Villechaize, has been one of his models. Alex has been owner and curator of the Gallery At The Plaza Hotel for the past 25 years. His patronage extends the world over with his work being in constant demand by both new and established clients. As a painter Alex captures both the energy and serenityoflife in New York. He keeps his finger "on the pulse" with an eye on celebrities and his paintbrush ready to translate the soul of the city onto his canvas. Fifth Avenue throbbing with the color and crowds of St. Patrick's Day. The Plaza Hotel, gently tucked in for the night by a blanket of falling snow flakes. When preparing for a new show the artist will spend months studying his exhibit at Harkness House, spending many hours with dancers -- in and out of rehearsals -- in order to study their movements and feelings. This contributes to his success in capturing on canvas, not just a dancer dancing a part, but the essence of the person involved. Alex has painted ballet dancers: Gelsey Kirkland, Nureyev, Baryshnikov, and Susan Jaffe. The Intensity the artist feels is clearly recognized in all of his paintings. One is not just a viewer of his work -- to see his paintings is to become a part of them.
