Luce Artist Biography

Brockie Stevenson trained at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, then traveled around Europe as an artist-correspondent for the U.S. Army during World War II. He taught art for seven years in Lima, Peru, then returned to America to work at the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington. Stevenson paints symbols of Americana such as lighthouses, clapboard homes, country stores, and fire stations, and his still, quiet images appear to preserve fleeting moments in time.
