Robert Genn (1936-2014) Biography


Robert Genn was born in Victoria, British Columbia in 1936. His formal training included the University of Victoria, the University of British Columbia and the Art Center School in Los Angeles, California.

Recognized as one of Canada's most accomplished painters, his work is well-known internationally. While his subjects were universal, he excelled in portraying Canada. He was perhaps best known for his works of the West Coast and the Rocky Mountains.

Robert's technique included a tradition of strong design with patterns of colour and form, with a pervasive sense of personal style. Grand themes were transposed onto small panels and larger canvases in a manner similar to members of the Group of Seven.

Most of Robert's work was in acrylic, however, he also did considerable work in oils, watercolour, and silk screen printing. (source: www.robertgenn.com)
