Over Scott Bartner

Scott E. Bartner(1960, Washington, D.C.) grew up in the suburbs of Bethesda, Maryland. Despite growing up in an artistic household, Scott never gave the slightest indication of the direction his career would eventually take. In fact, it wasn't until his sophomore year at Rutgers College, where he was studying economics, that he received his first exposure to art history in a course taken more on a whim than with any real intention of studying the subject seriously. Because of the nature of the courses (two automatic slide projectors were often used in rapid succession), he began to make quick sketches in a notebook of the images appearing on the screen, simply to remember which painting the professor was referring to.

After college Scott went directly to business school, earned his Master's degree, and soon found himself working as a financial analyst in a large bank. In 1988, Bartner was back in the US and began his first copies of old master drawings, drawn from models at a local college and received his first lessons in oil painting from an artist and colleague of his father, Al Loang. Bartner later took drawing and painting classes at The American University and was encouraged by his teacher, Ruth Stroik, to continue his studies.

A turning point in his artistic development was a three-week trip to Tuscany with fellow art students, where the works of Andrea Del Sarto, Giorgione, Titian and Caravaggio made a lasting impression.After meeting and showing his work to the noted Washington artist and teacher Frank Wright, Scott was advised to study with Danni Dawson, a prize student of Nelson Shanks. Danni set up a rigorous schedule for him in- and outside the classroom, which included making colour studies, painting self-portraits and still lifes, and copying a large portrait by Sargent..

In 1991, his wife was offered a position in the Netherlands and Scott finally saw his dream of living abroad come true. He found employment with a pharmaceutical company and studied in the evenings with the Dutch artist Maarten Welbergen in Amsterdam. From Maarten he learned a traditional painting technique that suited his nature and way of working. When his contract ended, Scott decided to put an end to his business career and to paint full time. In 1993 he moved to Maastricht, where he established himself as a professional portrait painter. Since then he has received numerous portrait commissions throughout Europe and the United States. Notable portrait commissions in The Netherlands include Mr. F. Barge and Mrs. C. Dreesmann-Barge, Mrs. A. van Beuningen-Ferrier, Mrs. H.J. De Graff-Hesselink, BisschoppelijkVicaris van der Meer SJ, Mr Z.F. Baron van Dorth tot Medler, Mr R.H.M.J. Baron van Hövell tot Westerflier, and Mr J.M. Saleh, former Governor General of the Netherlands Antilles.
