New Mexico painter, Carol Allison, will be showing oils and watercolors in
the classical realist approach at the Cyrus Dallin Museum, in Arlington, MA.
for the month of January. Allison studied at The Siegfried Hahn Howard
Wexler School in Albuquerque, NM beginning in 1970, where she learned the
18th century English methods in watercolor, 19th century French principles of
drawing of Professor Lecoq de Boisbaudran and the Maroger mediums in oil.
The Hahn Wexler School, started in Paris, has been dedicated to promoting a
greater understanding of classical painting to artists and the public
throughout the nation for over 30 years.
Allison a teacher of these methods
for 20 years, has also taught with Hahn and Wexler in Albuquerque and Morocco.
Her training in oil painting is based on researches of Jacques Maroger the
eminent professor, artist and scientist who wrote The Secret Formulas and
Techniques of the Masters. His search for formulas of the High Renaissance
masters produced the Venetian and Flemish painting mediums used by many
classical realist painters of the current classical painting movement. Along
with Hahn and Wexler, Carol Allison helped facilitate and participated in the
first major shows of Jacques Marogers work in the Southwest and with other
Maroger medium painters of note, including Dan Griggs and Joan Irey.
The exhibit contains a variety of subject matter. Since moving to the East
Coast she has concentrated on landscapes which will be included in the
