Anderson Galleries was thrilled to hear the announcement of the new Nobel Prize winners, Liz Blackburn and Carol Greider, all Americans, one from Cold Spring Harbor Lab, and all having been painted by David Peikon, award winning Portrait and Landscape artist, represented by Anderson Galleries.

David has painted the portraits of 5 Nobel Prize winners along with many aristocrats, politicians and CEO’s as well as family portraits. He painted Nobel Prize winner, and Long Island pride and joy, Dr. James Watson, twice.  Most people know David Peikon for his glorious landscapes which he paints most often of local scenery, but he also paints landscapes during his travels, often to Italy to do portraits of the Ferragamo family. There is already a waiting list for Portraits by David Peikon. Many of his landscapes are available at Anderson Galleries.
