About the Book
JT Harding is an American-born representational painter who values the aesthetics and philosophical principles of the Humanist Realism Tradition. Born in a suburb of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, he now resides in East Walpole, Massachusetts. The thread that weaves through Harding's depictions of contemporary concepts and subject matter is a bravura painting process that emphasizes minimal fresh and loose brushstrokes that, when viewed from a distance, come sharply into focus. It is evident through his sensually painted surface, the pleasure the artist derives from a deftly handled brush. Mr. Harding is a member of the Oil Painters of America, The Portrait Society of America, and is an Associate member of The Guild of Boston Artists. In 2010, JT was selected for the Artist-in-Residence program at The Cape Cod Art Association. His original paintings and commissioned works hang in many private and corporate collections in the U.S. and in England.
