JUST ACQUIRED: A MAGNIFICENT TRAYNOR WORK!
The Artist ca. 2004
Curator's Comment: We first met Traynor at Salmagundi, where he has been the auction sales
leader for many years and the current dean of active Salmagundi painters. We thought we had
purchased a Traynor in a Salmagundi auction, but were outbid at the last moment. Now, at last we can
offer a magnificent Traynor--a close-up perspective called "In the Winter Woods" and we think Traynor
paints best in this perspective. Traynor's painting style is reminiscent of some 19th century painters,
and sometimes the Dutch Masters. He uses what he knows about light and color to create a natural
vision that resonates and liberates the observer's personal perspective.
Traynor was born October 19, 1961. He spent his early years in Chester and Mendham, New Jersey.
His art studies began at Delbarton School in Morristown New Jersey; from there he went to Paier
College of Art in New Haven Connecticut. He studied figure painting at the Art Students League of
New York, as a merit scholar, with Frank Mason, as well as landscape painting with Mr. Mason in
Vermont. Traynor also studied in Italy. Traynor currently resides with his family in southern New
Hampshire and enjoys painting rural New England scenes.
He is a member of the Hudson Valley Art Association, The Salmagundi Club of New York, The National
Society of Mural Painters, and he is a Copley Master in the Copley Society of Boston. Traynor is the
recipient of over two hundred awards of merit for his art, including the Grumbacher Gold Medal, the
Robb Sagendorph award, and the Frank DuMond Memorial Award for best light and atmospheric
effect in a painting. His work is enjoyed in over one thousand private and public collections in the
United States and abroad, including the Passaic Country College, the Patterson Historical Museum,
the Ironbound Education and Cultural Center, Connecticut Bank and Trust, the Sony Music
Corporation, and McGraw Hill Publishers.
