Peter (P.A.) Nisbet is a nationally recognized master of the American landscape. His works are highly spiritual and strongly rooted in the Realist tradition of nineteenth-century artists such as Thomas Moran and Albert Bierstadt. He is a graduate of the University of North Carolina and a former U.S. Naval officer with service in Vietnam. Nisbet moved from Washington, D.C., to the Southwest in 1980 to commence a successful painting career that has now spanned over four decades. He travels extensively, working on location in places such as the Grand Canyon, the deserts of the United States and Mexico, the Gulf of California and Antarctica. Each trip is an adventure, full of experiences that he captures in paint. His work is honored in the permanent collections of the Eiteljorg Museum, the Tucson Museum of Art, the Fred Jones, Jr. Museum of Art, NASA, the National Science Foundation, and in numerous private collections worldwide. He lives in Santa Fe, NM and his work can be found on the web at www.panisbet.com.
