It is masterfully done with a very fine technique and details brush works and use of beautiful colors. David Homan, born August 23, 1930 in Hempstead, Long Island, NY passed away on June 21, 2007 at his home in Scottsdale, AZ. He was the son of the late Harry E. Homan, a commercial artist and a nationally known syndicated political cartoonist in the 1920's and 1930's. David pursued his father's path as an artist but chose rather the field of fine art.
After leaving the military service, he studied at the College of Art, now called the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and then at the Academy of Fine Arts in Philadelphia. He also studied printmaking at the Samuel S. Fleisher Art Memorial in Philadelphia.In 1994, he and his partner Dr. Rosenbaum moved to Scottsdale, Arizona where David's brother, Robert Homan lives with his family. In 2004, Robert passed away.
Throughout their lives, both Robert and David gave their time and monies to both gay and art related associations on both sides of the continent. Being a soft spoken, unassuming person, David was the last person to allow any mention of his good deeds or art in anyway. As such, only few people have come to appreciate what a fine artist and philanthropist David had become. His imagination was boundless, and his creations whether classical, fantasies, or folk art were all done with infinite care and attention to detail.
Some of David's works can currently be seen in the William Way Community Center in Philadelphia. He donated some of his artworks to their permanent collection and others to be auctioned to raise funds. An exhibition of his work is being planned for a Sept. Other pieces can be seen at the Samuel S. The Hospice of the Valley has also been the recipient of David's art.
A strange, evocative painting in the tonalist tradition by Philadelphia surrealist, GLB activist, listed in Davenports. His work can be found in the Fleischer Art Memorial.
This is certainly one of Homan's larger works, and truly one of his Best! DAVID HOMAN (1930 - 2007) Artist, Philanthropist - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Mostly known for his surrealism images.
Homan was a colorful character and advocate for Gay and Lesbian rights in Philadelphia. His paintings do not show up for sale very often. I believe his estate donated much of his work to the Fleisher Art Memorial after he died. Homan is listed in AskArt and Davenport's art reference.
I have been unable to find a good biography, although I know that Homan lived in Philadelphia, and studied for a time at The Barnes Foundation. Homan's style reminds me of the work of George Tooker or Robert Vickery.There is an odd detached quality to the subject, who is dressed in a strange tunic. As was often the case with Homan, he used a trompe de l'oeil method to sign and date the painting.
