|James R. Huntsberger of
Delaware, has painted in oils since 1946. In 1988, he began to sell his
original oils, which are now in private and corporate collections internationally.
originals have all been oils. Subject matter is broad including portraits,
seascapes, beach scenes, landscapes, still life and historical structures (both interiors
and exteriors). He has experimented with unusual subject matter and abstracts but
remains essentially a "realist."
Art collectors are familiar with his Brandywine Valley scenes. His
painting, "Grand Opera House II", was chosen as the program book cover for
the 2001-2004 seasons of The Grand Opera House in Wilmington, Delaware.
Huntsberger has received many prizes for his oil
paintings. He was selected to membership in the Philadelphia Sketch Club in 1991and
the Oil Painters of America in 1999. He is a member of the Portrait Society of
America and the Delaware Foundation for the Visual Arts.
He has closed his studio and moved to The Devon
condominiums. Therefore he is selling his oil paintings and works by other
artists that do not fit on the walls of this smaller home.
