ABOUT the ARTIST
La pittura di Robert Morgan, Andrea Molesini
Robert Morgan and the Art of Perception, Robert C. Morgan
Robert Morgan was born in New York in 1943. He attended Princeton University, and after taking his degree in English literature in 1965, he turned to painting. After a brief period at the Art Student’s League in New York, he begun to work as an assistant to the painter and sculptor Edward Melcarth. In 1973 he moved to Venice where he studied with Luigi Tito at the Accademia di Belle Arti.
His work displays the influence of Romantic Impressionism. While adhering to the tenets of the figurative realist tradition, he attempts to create a pictorial alchemy composed of familiar elements, colors, and contrasts to capture the fleeting beauty of light. He works in oil on canvas and panel. Although principally a landscape painter, he also paints portraits, still-lifes, and figure compositions. He lives and works in Venice.
