André Durand

André Durand

André Durand (born Ottawa, Canada 1947) is a painter working in the European Hermetic tradition. He is influenced by artists such as Rubens, Titian, Michelangelo and Velázquez.

Although Durand is perhaps best known for his allegorical portraits, such as Princess Diana as Fortuna, he achieved international artistic acclaim for his official portraits of John Paul II (1983) and the Dalai Lama (1983, 1989). Durand’s portrait of the Irish novelist Elizabeth Bowen (1972) is one of the most popular portraits in London’s National Portrait Gallery.

Never having visited Dorset before, the countryside was a revelation. As a result Durand situated timeless Christian and Pagan myths in the Dorset Landscape throughout his paintings, using local models and depicting the lush Dorset landscape to great effect.
