Frank Bruckmann


Frank Bruckmann discovered painting in his 20’s, while living in his native state, New Jersey. Compelled by the seductive properties of oil paints, he began studying at the DuCret School of Art, and at the Art Students League in New York City.  Early on, he knew he had embarked upon a lifelong career, as professors and art collectors encouraged him to continue his studies abroad, and so he spent nearly a decade in Europe.  In Paris, he studied at the Ecole des Beaux Arts and  the Paris American Academy. Wanting to better understand the techniques of the Great Masters, he  found himself in the Musee D’Orsay and the Louvre copying  painters from Frans Hals to Cezanne.   Later in Madrid, Frank copied at the Museo de Prado, reproducing painters like Velasques and El Greco.

For those  years abroad, Bruckmann, made his living as an artist , selling his local landscapes or museum reproductions, and from time to time,  modeling for figure classes .  He participated in a number of group shows and one person exhibitions and then returned to the US. In 1990.  Bruckmann was offered an artist’s studio in South Norwalk, CT and discovered the very paintable CT shoreline.  Through art guilds and galleries, Bruckmann made connections and began showing his work in CT and NJ and up further into New England.  He began winning awards in exhibitions, such as the First Prize Jurors Award (2006){2008},  the coveted Grumbacher  Medal Award (2004), The Elizabeth Prast Award {2008} and The Weiss Sisters Award (2001) (2006} {2012}, all at the New Haven Paint and Clay Club, and the Brush and Palette Clubs.

Residing in Westville, New Haven, an area known for it’s culturally rich, diverse and artsy population, Bruckmann’s gallery representations include New Haven’s prominent gallery, Kehler Liddell Gallery and the Lupin gallery of Monhegan Maine. Additionally, Frank involves himself in the arts community’s annual events, such as Citywide Open Studios and the Westville Village ArtWalk.  Besides New Haven,  you can find Frank painting in diverse places as Nova Scotia, Florida, St.Barths, Mexico, Colorado, Maine, and those bucolic landscapes of Pennsylvania and Vermont. His artwork is included in many American and International collections,
