ABOUT THE ARTIST
Daniel Patrick Kessler’s artistic roots began in Catholic grammar school, where nuns gave him holy cards – bright, ornate depictions of religious scenes – which caught his eye and fired his imagination.
Among his major influences are modern artists Joseph Cornell, Man Ray, Robert Rauschenberg, and Gregory Gillespie, the 17th century Dutch masters and the Italian Renaissance painters.
Today, Kessler’s distinctive renderings of the Texas state flag, of a sheepish, brightly colored red dog with an apple on its head, known as William Tell’s dog, and of 19th century Washington homes have become a staple of his oeuvre.
Kessler’s architectural pieces include five commissioned Presidential commemorative paintings of The White House and a folk art rendition of the White House used by President Clinton and the First Lady for a 1996 Christmas card.
