Contemporaries: John Howard Sanden

Portraits of John Howard Sanden: A Thirtieth Anniversary Collection by John Howard Sanden (Author), Dr. Bryant Kirkland (Foreword) – Hardcover
Publisher: Madison Square Press (2001)

For more than three decades, John Howard Sanden has been painting portraits of men and women of achievement. Now Madison Square Press has published a large-format (9 x 12 inches) hardcover collection of the artist's best portraits. Each painting is accompaniedby the artist's own commentary, plus supporting studies and preliminary work. There are 160 pages, with 126 illustrations in color.

In addition to the collector's album of sixty large color plates of portraits (one of which includes a bonus three-page foldout step-by-step demonstration), there are two sections of particular interest to artists. The Premier Coup Tradition in Portrait Painting traces the four hundred year history of direct, broad-stroke technique, from Velázquez to today. A concluding appendix, John Sanden's Creative & Technical Procedure provides much helpful data, including materials specifications complete with source addresses and telephone numbers.

Successful Portrait Painting by John Howard Sanden, Elizabeth Sanden – Hardcover: 144 pages Publisher: Watson-Guptill Pubns; Reissue edition (February 1986)

Reader review: This useful book may appear out of date but it's packed with information useful to any painter or photographer. For example, a head shot is compared in different lighting. An identical pose is framed and placed differently. The author even provides forms and professional practice advice that would be helpful to any new practitioner. The styles and dress of the pictures are dated, but the content never goes out of date.
