Eddy Greenwood’s inspiration comes from Old Masters, such as Anthony van Dyck, Diego Velàzquez and Titian. Greenwood’s pursuit of their excellence led him on a journey to Italy, where he studied at The Florence Academy of Art and Charles H. Cecil Studios, both ateliers renowned for their commitment to the theory and practice of drawing from life. Enriched by this classical training, he now works as a figurative artist from his studio in The Netherlands. The Lace Collar is reminiscent of 17th century Dutch portraits of noblemen. His oil paintings have received international recognition, with shows in Amsterdam and Venice.
