Anthony Christian (Born October 24, 1945 in London, United Kingdom) is a prominent British painter.
Anthony Christian was granted the privilege, at the age of ten, of studying the techniques of the "Old Masters" at the National Gallery in London. Throughout his time at the National Gallery and for a further seven years Anthony studied at length the works of Rubens, Rembrandt and other Old Masters. His painting and drawing style most resembles the techniques of Leonardo da Vinci and he has dedicated his life to the discovery of all means possible, to paint beautiful works of art.
In his earlier days Anthony earned his living as a portrait artist and painted many of the world's rich and famous, including Lord Mountbatten, Baroness Olympia de Rothschild, Baroness Fiona Thyssen, Count Guido di Carpegna, Lord Lichfield, Blake Edwards, Julie Christie and Terence Stamp.
His work now features in some prominent private art collections. Collections such as Gore Vidal, Baroness Marie-Helene de Rothschild, Viscountess Jacqueline de Ribes, Mrs J Heinz, Bill Blass, HM Queen Elizabeth II, Mrs. James Lipton and Herbie Hancock.
His wife, Marian Fanny Christian, is also an artist. Fanny's style is probably unique in its form and uninfluenced by Christian's work. Her work comes purely from her heart and soul, manifesting itself in a harmony of colour and form upon paper.
