Robert Richter
'Apples' original oil on wood painting signed by Robert Richter

2011

$3,500

About

In this oil on wood panel painting, Robert Richter places the viewer at the foot of a path that wraps around and beyond a small apple tree. The tree, with its ruby apples, casts a cool shadow in the foreground, the deep green of which fades into yellows as the landscape recedes into the distance. Richter's minimal use of line for the landscape suggests shrubs and growth, but the simplicity leaves the space to the imagination. The ambiguity privileges faint memory over direct observation, and is part of Richter's working process. 14.25 x 18 inches, painting 19 x 23 inches, frame Titled, dated, signed in pencil & stamped with initial on verso Housed in a frame of the artist's design and construction Born in Milwaukee, Robert Richter has been painting from the age of eight. His unique paintings are hand carved on wood as well as hand carved frames that become an integral part of the paintings. The artist comments, “I want my paintings to be stunning from across the room, to beckon, as all good paintings should. And then close up, what a surprise!” The artist lived in New York where he painted literally everything from stage sets to mural commissions. He painted store front windows, lithographs from aluminum plates for actors, T-shirts, costumes, curtains, wall hangings, furniture and floors. His unique experiences, intellect, extraordinary color sensibility result in a stunning style with flavors of Avery, Grant Wood and Matisse, but mostly himself.
