|Suydam cover for the new deluxe coffee table book.|
The most recent in a line of books on this celebrated artist has just been released as a deluxe coffee table volume, entitled "The Complete Cholly and Flytrap," from Titan Publishing, while previous books on Suydam include "The Art of Arthur Suydam," from Vanguard, and "The Art of the Barbarian" from Eva Ink / Heavy Metal, among others.
Suydam comes by his painting instincts naturally: Great Uncles on his father's side, James Suydam and Henry Suydam were both among the dozen artists who won American painters recognition on the world stage for the first time at the outbreak of the Civil War, circa 1861 and became known as the Hudson River Painters --a collection of landscape artists credited with reinventing the world of fine art at that time. In the 20s and 30s, E.H. Suydam became one of America’s most celebrated architectural artists with artworks now hanging in the White House, Museum of New York and the National Academy Museum and more. It's a fair bet, that Suydam’s mother, Juliette, a native of Montreal, herself an avid painter may have contributed to instilling an appreciation of the arts into her three sons, as well.
