Biography

 

Kroll was born to an American father and British mother in New York City, that vital and prime centre of painting’s great flowering in the post Second World War period. Out of an artistic family environment he developed his lifelong passion for painting.

 

Kroll’s studies began in the Philadelphia College of Art and continued at the Academy of Art in Florence and then at the Museum of Archaeology in Athens. This study was the manifestation of his passion for the classical tradition. His love of world art is anthropological in its scope, stretching across the millennia of humanity’s aspiration to creatively interpret in painting and sculpture that which is spiritually important to mankind. A keen interest in Italy’s Renaissance artists is matched by the deep influences he absorbed from the great works since the mid-nineteenth century of Van Gogh, Picasso, Kandinsky, Klee and Mondrian.

 

Kroll’s work has been exhibited in major galleries and museums across the globe including in Paris at the Musée du Louvre, in New York, and in London.
