Impressionist painter Alan Flattmann was born in New Orleans, Louisiana, in 1946. Showing an early aptitude for art, he studied at the McCrady Art School on a New Orleans Art Association scholarship in his senior year of high school. In 1987, he first published a book titled The Art of Pastel Painting, which is regarded as a standard textbook for pastel techniques. The internationally known artist is the recipient of many major awards and honors, including his 2006 induction into the Pastel Society Hall of Fame. He also received the 1996 American Artist Art Masters Award for pastels. In 1991, he was awarded the Master Pastelist distinction by the Pastel Society of America, and he has been listed in Who's Who in American Art since 1981. Because of his decades of success painting the historic French Quarter, September 28 is celebrated as Alan Flattmann Day in New Orleans, Louisiana. His work has been featured in Alan Flattmann's French Quarter Impressions, written by John R. Kemp and produced by Pelican; The Poetic Realism of Alan Flattmann, by Joyce Kelley; and articles in American Artist, Watercolor, The Pastel Journal, Southwest Art, Pastel Artist International, Southern World, Art Masters, Art Voices/South, Louisiana Vistas, and Jackson and New Orleans magazines. In addition, Flattmann has received international attention by being featured in the Taiwanese books Pastel Step by Step and To Paint How You See, both by Aven Chen. He was awarded first place for landscape and third place for portrait in the inaugural Pastel Artist International Magazine Awards for World-Wide Excellence. Flattmann's work may be found in hundreds of private and corporate collections, including the collections of the New Orleans Museum of Art, Ogden Museum of Southern Art, Oklahoma Art Center, Mississippi Museum of Art, and Lauren Rogers Museum of Art. Bryant Galleries, located in New Orleans and Jackson, Mississippi, are the exclusive agents for his work. The artist continues to teach painting workshops for art groups around the United States and abroad. He resides in Covington, Louisiana, with his wife.
