Carl Laubin

Capriccio Jersiaise for 37 Esplanade

Carl Laubin was born in New York in 1947. He trained as an architect at Cornell University and moved to England with his wife Christine in 1973, working in several architectural offices and also finding time for his other great interest, painting. In 1984 he started work in Jeremy Dixon’s office and produced a series of paintings of Dixon’s proposals for redeveloping the Royal Opera House. These led to a number of commissions to paint architectural subjects, which resulted in Laubin making a permanent move from architecture to painting as a profession.

His subjects have remained primarily architectural although he also has an interest in landscape. The architectural capriccio has become the genre with which he is most closely identified, having produced capricci to commission for Castle Howard, The National Trust, The Syndicat des Grands Crus Classes du Medoc, and the Centre Pompidou among others.
