SPORTING ART/CYCLING ART/HORSES IN ART

Since the Greco-Roman immortalization of the athlete and since an occasional painting foray by Lautrec, Degas, Eakins, and Bellows, there has been little depiction of the energy, grace, and fierce determination of sport. Leroy Neiman created a vibrant visual oeuvre in our times, but the great majority of today’s sporting art is graphic, photographic, digital, and illustrative.

Artist Mona Mills offers a new contemporary vision that combines the beauty of the athletic figure with the expressive color and the gestural sweep of fine art. Convinced that art should be more than a skillful copy of a photo, she is painting canvases that are a lasting monument both to art history and to sport history.

Cycling legend and environmental artist John Howard is aware of the needs of his sport in the legacy of art. He has joined Mills as an advisor of technical support to ensure the veracity of her creative cycling work.

An avid horsewoman, Mills is proud to present the horse as athlete and include its depiction in the “Sporting” category as well as in the “Invention” category.
