Sharon Sprung

United States


New York painter Sharon Sprung is known for luminous and life-like portraits. Her subjects are wide ranging and have included accomplished individuals in the fields of business, academia and government as well as evocative portraits of children and women.

 Sprung’s portrait of Jannette Rankin, the first congresswoman elected in the United States, hangs in the U.S. House of Representatives, a commission she was awarded after a nationwide competition. She was also invited by the U.S.Department of State and The Academy of Art in St. Petersburg, Russia to display her portrait “Aude” at their museum and lecture about American Portraiture. Selected to show in the first Outwin-Boochever Portrait Competition at The National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C., she also received a commission to paint Virginia Boochever’s two grandchildren.

 Sharon Sprung has had numerous one-person shows in New York City at Gallery Henoch in Chelsea, as well as many group shows there and has exhibited widely at museums and universities across the country. Her work is nationally and internationally collected. This year, Ms Sprung will have paintings in an exhibit that began at the National Arts Club and will continue to travel to eight museums in China. In addition this year, she will be honored by the National Academy Museum and School of Fine Arts for her contributions as a painter and teacher.
