Daniel Greene is one of America’s national treasures whose work should be though of in parallel with the greatest of narrative artists. His art exploits both skill and imagination, and carries on the great American tradition of narrative painting. Beginning with Benjamin West’s historical works and extending to the academic works of the Ashcan artists and the painters of the American Scene, Green remains sensitive to the times and is aware of the contribution of modernism. Though his work rejects elements of modernism, it pays tribute to other aspects of it at the same time.
