ABOUT THE ARTIST: Jenness Cortez is a mid-career artist with astonishing talent. Born 1944 in Indiana, Jenness Cortez began her formal art studies at the age of sixteen under the guidance of noted Dutch painter, Antonius Raemaekers. Cortez further developed her solid fine arts background as a graduate of the Herron School of Art in Indianapolis and student of Arnold Blanche at the Art Students League of New York. Like the great horse painters George Stubbs and Frederic Remington, Jenness Cortez is first and foremost an extraordinary draftsman. Beginning in 1977, and for the next twenty years, she received international acclaim for her sporting paintings and her powerful depictions of the horse. During the mid 1990s, her long-time interest in landscape began to blossom. In the tradition of the 19th century Hudson River and Barbizon School painters, her vision comprehends all of nature as a manifestation of the divine. Cortez's landscape images evoke a certain transcendent quality rarely seen in contemporary realism. Her representations of the phenomenal world are sensitive, passionate and deeply moving.
