Peter Williams(New Zealander/American, 1934-2018)
A native New Zealander, Williams attended art school there, and as an artist developed a loyal following. In the early 1980s, he began to live, paint, and exhibit in the United States, settling in Louisville, Kentucky. A location painter, Williams strives for the immediacy and spontaneity he feels are essential to painting action subjects. For the past several years he has become a part of the equine scene, from training tracks in Japan and carriage driving at the Queen’s Sandringham Estate to famous tracks and events throughout the United States.
