Pure Truth, Kindness and Beauty

Updated: Mar 24

Award-Winning Oil Paintings Now Available to Public Through New Online Store

The NTD International Figure Painting Competition is unique among the art competitions of the world. That it only judges representational styles is rare enough, but the competition also places focus on content and meaning, not just technique. The competition has a mission to promote traditional fine arts, and has as its central theme “pure truth, pure kindness, pure beauty.”


The mission served as a beacon for the burgeoning movement of representational artists last fall with an exhibition of the 2019 competition finalists’ works in New York City.

Now, for the first time, the works previously available only through private auction are for sale to the public. Both original paintings and reproductions of works by selected finalists can be found <
