Artist Al Lachman celebrates 65 years of fine art


For Bucks County artist, Al Lachman, painting is undeniably as natural as breathing.

Recognized as a master colorist and “Who’s Who in American Art” honoree, Lachman paints intuitively pouring himself into the painting while inviting the viewer to accompany him on a journey.

Lachman is a master colorist, sculptor, instructor, juror and author, celebrating a career milestone of 65 years of painting. Over the years, he has incorporated his artistic vision and vast knowledge of oil, pastels, acrylic and mixed media, creating his own bold, colorful, spontaneous and painterly style.

His work is represented in numerous public and private collections, including the Ford Motor Company; The Walt Disney Corporate Collection; Northwest Airlines; The Hershey Corporation; The Canadian Government Census Bureau; Mayer Brown; Doylestown Hospital; Le Bec Fin in Philadelphia; and most recently in Earl’s New American Restaurant in Peddler’s Village, Lahaska.

Born in 1936, he was classically trained in oil painting at the Art Students League, the School of Visual Arts and Syracuse University. He has received numerous awards including “Best of Show” at the Pastel Society of America Annual Show in New York City, which is the highest honor bestowed upon any U.S. pastelist annually.

Lachman is known for his luminous colors and expressive paintings of Bucks County barns and landscapes, as well as his accomplished works of “The Homeless” series shown as part of the “Contemporary Eye” exhibition at the James A. Michener Museum.

His paintings continue to garner the attention of art collectors for fine art investment as well as receiving numerous honors over the past six decades.
