S. Dartmouth, MA--Robert was born in Bronxville, NY in 1969. He has spent his adult life painting images of the New England landscape. His paintings are done from life, plein air, in the tradition of Corot and Monet. He responds to the changing effects of light and atmosphere, using an economy of brushstrokes capturing quick nuances and shifts in line and color. Robert studied art in New York at the School of Visual Arts & The Arts Students League, graduating in 1993 with a B.F.A. in fine art. His work has appeared in the New York Times and The Washington Post. Many of Robert’s works have won national awards and he is often regarded as a painter’s painter. Robert is inspired to paint what he calls a vanishing history of America’s past and his passion is to preserve views of the New England coast.
