Biography

Judith Kudlow, a Montana native, now resides in New York City, where she received her art training. Her working method is based on the nineteenth century academic tradition which emphasizes working from life to produce paintings based on precise drawing, careful modeling to produce the three-dimensional illusion, harmonious and accurate colors and values, and compositions based on time-honored rules. Her subjects include figures, portraits, still life, and landscape. Her interest in classical drapery studies has led her most recently to produce a series of paintings using contemporary draped subjects, primarily shirts. Her studio is a third-floor loft in a century-old cabinet maker’s building in East Harlem, which is also the location of her atelier, The Harlem Studio of Art, opened in 2002 with Andrea Smith, a Florence Academy graduate.
