The paintings of artist Paul Sawyier are highly popular in Kentucky.
In part, Sawyier's renown is due to the recognizable local landmarks and landscapes that are the subject of much of his work.
Although Sawyier was not born in Kentucky, he lived the majority of his life in Frankfort with brief periods spent in Covington and on a houseboat on the Kentucky River.
Although Sawyier’s final years were spent in the Catskills of New York, the beautiful landscapes of the Bluegrass State continued to be his most consistent artistic theme.
This tour explores Sawyier's boyhood life, artistic training, style, and inspiration, his pivotal friends and patrons, his death in New York, and re-internment in the Frankfort Cemetery.
We hope you will enjoy learning more about one of Kentucky's most beloved artists as well as exploring for yourself the beautiful landscapes that served as his inspiration.
