This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A native of Washington DC, Robert Landry settled in San Diego, California where he became known for his watercolor landscapes.  Previous to that, he was Staff Artist for the U.S. Air Force Graphic Arts in the Pentagon Building and also Art Director for the Federal Aviation Agency in New Jersey and Convair Astronautics.

After serving in World War II, he studied art in Washington DC and Minneapolis, using the G.I. Bill, and this education led to his commercial art work.

By the early 1950s he was becoming a serious fine-art watercolorist with regional subjects of coastal scenes, buildings, and townscapes. He sold his paintings through galleries in San Diego and Dallas and also gave watercolor workshops near his home in San Diego and in Hawaii, Oregon, and Arizona.

Robert Landry (1921-1991)...Born: Washington, D.C.

Studied: Abbott Art School, Art Instruction, Inc.

Member: San Diego Watercolor Society, Watercolor West.

Robert Landry attended high school on the East Coast then went into the service during World War 11. Afier the war, he studied art in Washington, D.C. and Minneapolis on the G.I. Bill. This led to work as a commercial illustrator for the United States Air Force Graphic Arts Division at the Pentagon, and as an art director for the Federal Aviation Agency and Convair Astronautics.

After the late 1940s, he began a serious painting career and started exhibiting fine art watercolors. His paintings often depicted regional subjects with buildings, boats or coastline structures. Creating a "mood" was important to him and gives his works a narrative quality. His watercolors were primarily sold through art galleries in San Diego and Dallas. Landry also became a well-known instructor at watercolor workshops near his home in San Diego and in traveling workshops held in Oregon, Arizona and Hawaii.
