Allen Blagden

Born in 1938, Allen Blagden began formally painting in 1948 at the Hotchkiss School in Lakeville, Connecticut under the tutelage of his father, artist Thomas Blagden. He received his BFA from Cornell University in 1962 and held his first solo show soon after at the Janet Nessler Gallery in New York City, winning the Allied American Artist’s Prize for Best First One Man Show of the Year. He hasn’t ceased working since, holding countless group and solo shows, continuing up until the present day.
