About Edwin Dickinson

Edwin Dickinson combined his academic training with a singular, expressive style in his paintings, drawings, and etchings. Son of a preacher, the artist was born and raised in eastern and central New York State. Though he spent formative years in both New York City and Paris, the cliffs, woods, lakes, and deep winters of his childhood surroundings were his work’s enduring subjects. His portfolio encompasses landscapes, still lifes, portraits, and symbolic or fantastical scenes. While he executed his prints and drawings naturalistically and with a tight, controlled hand, he often rendered his paintings loosely and with gestural brushwork. Many of Dickinson’s landscapes seem to verge on abstraction, with patches of greens, browns, and blues resolving into trees, sky, and water. His admired work was included in an exhibition showcasing contemporary American art at the 34th Venice Biennale.
