A Delectable Small Work by Sarah Lamb

Sarah Lamb (American, b. 1970)
Petite Cheesecake
oil on linen, 10 x 18 in.
A classical and dynamic realist painter, Sarah Lamb has a special talent for capturing minute details that highlight the beauty of everyday objects. Lamb’s still-lifes are often inspired by her love of cooking, with the artist selecting subjects from her own kitchen or local markets; sometimes with a nod to iconic still-life painter Wayne Thiebaud who is widely known for his colorful paintings of pastries and pies.  In this sweet little painting, Petite Cheesecake, her application of the paint to the canvas is refined, yet fresh, capturing this delectable treat in all its glory.

Sarah Lamb mastered her classical painting skills with studies at Brenau Women’s College, the Studio Art Center International in Florence, Italy, The École Albert Defois in France’s Loire Valley with Ted Seth Jacobs, and the Water Street Atelier in New York with Jacob Collins.  She has had successful one-woman shows throughout the United States over the last 15 years with collectors continually seeking her exquisite floral and still-life paintings. Her work has also been included in museum exhibitions in the Asheville Art Museum, NC, Greenville County Museum of Art, SC, Cahoon Museum of American Art, MA, New Britain Museum of Art, CT, Pelham Art Center, NY, and the Brandywine River Museum, PA.

Petite Cheesecake is priced at $8,500
