Greg Mort 

Greg Mort

Greg Mort is considered one of America’s foremost contemporary painters and a preeminent influence on art in the twenty first century. Hisunmistakably contemporary creations have the classic feel of the Dutch Masters but are juxtaposed with startlingly modern designs. They are included in many prominent collections including the Smithsonian, Corcoran Gallery of Art, Delaware Art Museum, Academy Art Museum, Portland Museum of Art, and Bradywine River Museum.
