    Malcolm T Liepke (born 1953) American, attended the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena and has, in the last decade, established himself as a leading contributor in today’s resurgence of figurative painting. Bold brushstrokes, rich buttery surfaces and most importantly, the timeless humanity of his classically inspired imagery have been heralded in successful one-man exhibitions around the world. Mr. Liepke’ works are in the collections of both the Brooklyn Museum and the Smithsonian Museum, as well as many prestigious private collections.

    I see Lautrec, Klimt and Boldini in his works. Beautiful.
