Ivan Le Lorraine Albright (1897-1983) was an American magic realist painter and artist, most renowned for his self-portraits, character studies, and still lifes. Among Albright's typically dark, mysterious works are some of the most meticulously executed paintings ever made, often requiring years to complete. Lace curtains or splintered wood would be recreated using brushes of a single hair. Albright focused on a few themes through most of his works, particularly death, life, the material and the spirit, and the effects of time. In 1943 he was commissioned to create the title painting for Albert Lewin's film adaptation of Oscar Wilde's "The Picture of Dorian Gray." Ivan made the changes in the painting during the film. This original painting currently resides in the Art Institute of Chicago. Albright was a prolific artist throughout his life, working as a printer and engraver as well as a painter. His last visit to his old home town of Warrenville, Illinois was in 1978. The city declared Ivan Albright Day, and honored Albright with a full day of festivities. Albright's biographer, Michael Croydon, was on hand to present the newly published, richly illustrated book (this book) called "Ivan Albright." He was elected a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in 1979. Albright made over twenty self-portraits in his last three years, even on his deathbed, drawing the final ones after a stroke. He died in 1983.
