About Leonard Porter

Leonard Porter was born in 1963 and was raised in the Pacific Northwest. He received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1986 and a Master of Fine Arts from The School of Visual Arts in 1989.

In 1991, Porter began exploring classicism. His paintings of antiquity and classical mythology have been exhibited in museums and galleries around the country and have appeared in many publications, such as The New York Times (.), The Philadelphia Inquirer and Art & Antiques Magazine. Porter has lectured at a number of institutions such as the University of Notre Dame, the Dahesh Museum of Art and the Institute of Classical Architecture & Classical America, where he is a Fellow Emeritus. Porter is a member of the INTBAU College of Traditional Practitioners and a recipient of the Arthur Ross Award for Excellence in the Classical Tradition.

Recent works have included large scale ecclesiastical murals, ceiling designs for residential settings, mythological landscape paintings, and decorative works such as painted furniture and bas-relief design. Porter has created a number of drawings and prints based on the Attic red figure style and is currently working on a large painting of “The Sacrifice of Iphigeneia”.

Porter's work is represented in many collections, both public and private, and may be viewed online at leonardporter.com and by appointment in his New York Studio.
