Born in Richmond, Virginia, Robert Gwathmey became an artist known for his Social Realist depictions of life in the rural South.  He was one of the first white artists to create dignified images of African-American people and did so in a style that was modernist with many geometric forms and bold colororation.

Although he lived intermittently in Pennsylvania and in the South, he spent most of his forty-five year career in New York City where his studio was at 1 West 68th Street (showing 500 of 9885 characters).
