Jack Montmeat is a realist painter with a studio in East Lyme, Connecticut. Growing up in Old Lyme, Jack was inspired by the story of the art colony in the town and the paintings of its members. Having studied at the Lyme Academy of Fine Arts, Columbus College of Art and Design (B.F.A. 2002), The American University of Paris, and SACI in Florence, Italy Jack continues to work in a representational tradition. He maintains a weekly schedule of teaching drawing and painting from life at Lyme Art Association. Jack was honored to receive a grant from The Stobart Foundation in 2009, which allowed him to independently study in the museums of Paris. Jack paints life-size commissioned portraits, most recently for Yale University and UConn School of Law.
