About the Artist
After attending The Hartford Art School, David R. Prentice honed his craft in New York City, as former Studio Assistant to many prominent American painters including Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg, Helen Frankenthaler, Robert Motherwell, Alexander Liberman, Malcolm Morley and Andy Warhol.
Due to his woodworking expertise, David R. Prentice, was a master stretcher maker. All of his original artwork are painted on canvases that he personally built. Many artists including Cy Twombly and Malcolm Morley trusted him to stretch their multi-million-dollar paintings, on stretchers that he made specifically for them.
David traveled the world to mount exhibitions for gallerists, such as Betty Parsons in Lausanne, Switzerland and Carl Van der Voort in Ibiza, Spain. He was invited by Ileana Sonnebend to show in Paris and was featured in her inaugural show in New York in 1970. The famous Henry Geldazhler, former curator for the Metropolitan Museum of Art was instrumental to the start of his career by introducing him to Jasper Johns.
He is one of the last great American painters alive and loves sharing his incredible life experiences through his artwork.
