John Rizzotto, Blue Jar with Lemons
John Rizzotto is a contemporary American realist painter working in the still-life tradition. His carefully composed arrangements of natural and everyday objects recall the Spanish and Northern European masters, while keeping a contemporary sensibility.
Always painting from life, Rizzotto's primary concerns are capturing light and form, and exploring the endless possibilities of composition.
