Framed Breitenbach Prints

Thomas E. Breitenbach (Born 1951) is a self taught artist who was born in Queens, New York. He studied fine arts and architecture, in an independent study program, at the University of Notre Dame, before leaving for Italy where he became the youngest artist to receive the Rome Prize Fellowship in visual arts. The artist is best known for Proverbidioms, his comical and raucous painting that depicts of more than 300 common clichés and proverbs. Breitenbach also collaborated with Jim Morrison of The Doorson on a painting intended for use on his An American Prayer album – this was shortly before Morrison's death. Breitenbach turned down the 2nd year of the fellowship and, inspired by the museums and castles of Europe, returned home determined to build a castle-studio to house his art and eventually become a museum. His earliest works are spurred by his vision of the nature of man as being hopelessly violent and irrational, are dark allegories. His subjects are influenced by Carl Jung. They are intended to provoke strong emotional responses from the viewer and are constructed using archetypal symbols. Breitenbach produces art in a variety of finishing options including framed Thomas E. Breitenbach art. He emphasizes that his paintings are not surrealism - surrealists tend to use dream and personal symbols which are not an effective form of language. In 1973, Breitenbach was awarded the Rome Prize in the visual arts category in an event that was organized by the Society of Fellows of the American Academy in Rome.
