Judith’s famous husband and his past marriages

In 1974, he tied the knot with Nancy Ellen Gerstein, a former editor of The New Yorker magazine. Unfortunately, their marriage was bound to be broken and it came to an end a year later.
Similarly in 1981, he married Susan (Cullman) Sicher in Washington. This marriage also was not built to last as by 1985 his second marriage had fallen apart. After two failed relationships, Larry found his final bride in Judy. Well, it is like they say, the third time’s the charm.
What does Judith Kudlow do for a living?
Around the time she met Larry, she was working as a lobbyist and as a spokesperson at the Reagan White House. However, she quit her career after exchanging vows with Larry.
Sometime later, she started working again but in a different field. She became a contemporary artist/painter and teacher of classical art. Speaking of which, her artwork mostly consists of still life and she uses an art style based on the 19th-century academic tradition.
Her artwork is usually based on precise drawings and careful modeling to create a three-dimensional illusion that has accurate colors and values with time honour rules. She also is a teacher at her NYK Academy where she teaches the Bargue course and sight-size paintings.
Judy also founded an art studio in East Harlem, New York, named Harlem Studio of Arts. She built her studio in 2002 alongside her colleague Andrea Smith. At the present day, it is known as NYK Academy.
What kind of artwork does Judith make?
Mostly her artwork consists of still life, portraits, figures, and landscape. Judith’s interest in classical drapery studies inspired her to create draped subjects called “color-form” paintings.
One of her artwork “Senegalese” was displayed in the Oakham Contemporary Gallery exhibition in London. This particular exhibition was opened to benefit the Friends of Africa Foundation. She has expressed that her inspiration for this particular portrait came from the sight of many African American women wearing traditional African clothing in Harlem where her studio is located.
Judith’s artwork is usually on display at various exhibitions in New York and has also appeared in several art magazines. Most of her artwork is on auction or bought in high value depending on the nature of the art pieces.
