Dennis Patrick Lewan  1948 -


Dennis Patrick Lewan was born in 1948 and was raised near the small town of Thorp, Wisconsin and studied architecture and design just outside of Chicago, Illinois.

 

His creative abilities initially led him to a career in music, composing and performing in a rock band on two continents. Eventually they were under contract to Hugh Heffner and his Playboy Clubs. His performances entertained many famous celebrities including Frank Sinatra.

 

While Mr. Lewan is largely self-taught, he has been under the tutelage of other professional artists and teachers.  He has traveled extensively and visited many museums to study the Old Master paintings, realizing that "to paint like the masters, one must learn from the masters."

 

He works with the aid of an extensive collection of references that he has accumulated over twenty years. This allows him to recreate Holland, Belgium and other areas of Europe and America. His subjects bring wide acclaim from collectors due to his accuracy of detail and delicate brush control.

 

His art reflects the nostalgic lifestyle of the 18th and 19th centuries with colorful, realistic and gem-like precision. His most popular subjects include English manor houses, cottages and village streets, scenes of Dutch cities and quaint neighborhoods, flower gardens and windmills of rural Holland-Belgium and harbors from all over the world with lighthouses and full-masted schooners.

 

Recently, there has been a growing demand for his romantic stately Victorian homes and gazebos depicting the elegance and charm of the Victorian era.

 

Mr. Lewan wishes to provide the viewer with a glimpse into centuries past acquainting them with it's beauty and serenity, executing the brilliant color-play and back lighting of the Masters. There is something for everyone who seeks the traditional and representational, with warmth, romanticism and tranquility. Collectors in the U.S., Canada, Scotland, England, Germany, Spain, Italy, Belgium, Australia and the orient, presently own his paintings.

 

Many Investment, Financial Institutions, and Large Corporations as well as many celebrities, including: Ann Jillian, Dean Jones, and the Michael Jackson family also own his art.

 

Dennis Patrick Lewan has had 26 one-man shows in Galleries from Madison Avenue to Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills.


He is truly an accomplished artist.
