Robert Whitmore Oil Painting of Male Model

$2,695

About

This is an exquisite oil painting on unstretched canvas by listed artist Robert Whitmore (American; 1890-1979), dated early to mid-20th century. The piece depicts the gestural portrait of a partially nude male figure standing in a subtle contrapposto position. The work is unsigned and marked with artist’s estate stamp to the verso. This composition is presented unframed, mounted on foam board. Born in Dayton, Ohio, Robert Whitmore studied at the Art Institute of Chicago from 1913-1917. Subsequently, he served in World War I for a year, then continued his studies at the Cincinnati Art Academy. He is particularly known for his Ohioan landscapes painted en plein air, exhibiting loose impressionistic brushstrokes and brilliant vibrant colors. To accommodate working outdoors, he turned a Model T truck into his personal mobile studio. Whitmore was an art professor at Antioch College until his retirement in 1955, and his work has been exhibited at multiple institutions including the Dayton Art Institute, the National Academy of Design, and various galleries in Ohio.
