John was a featured artist in My Friends, Today’s Great Masters
published in 2007 by Jack Richeson.



When people think of the Great Masters of art, they often think first of the artists of the Italian Renaissance, the Impressionists or the Hudson River School.

The works of these past masters of art are so memorable that the great artists of the present day rarely come to mind.

Selected from among the numerous artists Jack Richeson has come to know through many years working in the art materials industry, these artists represent some of the greats in the present-day world of art.

While the work of some of these artists may be familiar, a number of less-known great masters are also honoured in these pages.

The variety of mediums, styles and subjects in this book illustrates the range of possibilities in today’s art world, and the mastery of these painters will inspire collectors, artists and art students everywhere.”
