Andre Pater(Polish/American, b. 1952)
Now a resident of Lexington, KY, this Polish-born artist received his master’s degree from the Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow. Arabian horses were his first subjects, and he was quickly one of the most sought after painters of this breed. In the late 1980s, he developed a love of the Thoroughbred and has again risen to the top of his field with racing scenes as well as portrayals of hunting dogs, cattle, and wildlife.
