Anthony Holdsworth was born in England and embarked on a painting career while working as Head of Outdoor Restoration for the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, Italy. He continued his studies at the Bournemouth College of Art in England, and then the San Francisco Art Institute. Originally a landscape artist influenced by the Bay Area Figurative Art movement, Holdsworth began painting plein air cityscapes near his Oakland studio. Eventually he made his way to San Francisco’s Mission District, as well as more detailed renderings. He has shown with major galleries through California and has been a recipient of the WESTAF-NEA fellowship. Holdsworth lives in San Francisco, and works both there and in Oakland.
