Hewing faithfully to the Renaissance and French academic traditions, Michael Klein is among the vanguard of contemporary painters working to rekindle classical art. The North Dakota native attended a string of ateliers and workshops in the Midwest before finishing his studies at the Water Street Atelier in New York City in 2005, training his eye on painting still lifes and the figure from life. Although he devotes most of his attention to floral still lifes these days, Klein is equally proficient at painting portraits. Last year, in fact, he snapped up the grand prize in the Portrait Society of America’s International Portrait Competition for NYC Entrepreneur, in which he captures a friend’s business-driven resolve.

Today Klein lives in Falmouth, MA, where he works on studio paintings and pursues a new passion painting en plein air. He also travels with his wife to her hometown in Buenos Aires, Argentina, where he maintains a second studio surrounded by a beautiful floral garden.
