Artist Langdon Quin

Langdon Quin is a native of Atlanta, Georgia. He now lives with his family in the Hudson Valley east of Troy, New York and in central Italy near the town of Gubbio.

He is a representational painter whose subjects include landscapes, interiors, figures, and still lifes and whose imagery is derived from both observation and invention. Quin has exhibited widely, both nationally and internationally, and he has had numerous solo shows in galleries on both the east and west coasts. He is the recipient of many awards including a Fulbright Fellowship, a Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation Grant, a National Endowment for the Arts grant, and two Ingram Merrill Foundation grants. He is also a member of the National Academy of Design in New York City.



​His paintings and works on paper are in prominent public and private collections both here and abroad. In addition, he has had a distinguished academic career teaching both undergraduates and graduate students in various university settings and professional art programs throughout the northeast. He is currently a Professor Emeritus of Painting and Drawing at the University of New Hampshire.
