Robert Genn (1936- ) - Biography

Robert Genn is considered one of Canada's most popular artists. Born in Victoria, B.C. in 1936, Robert attended the University of Victoria and U.B.C., and the Art Centre in Los Angeles, California.

He studied under Group of Seven artist Lawren Harris and the works of Walter Phillips, Emily Carr, and Tom Tompson had a profound influence on his artistic development.

Robert carries on the tradition of Canadian Landscape painting with fresh techniques, generous colour, and a strong sense of design. He has the gift of reducing grand themes in nature to small panels.

Like Toni Onley, Robert paints in the wilderness he loves. He has gained wide recognition for his powerful paintings of Canada's West Coast.
