Robert W. Blinn (1909-2001)
The landscape painter Robert W. Blinn was born on March 18, 1909 in Jacksonville. Florida. Not much is known about his formative years, except that he graduated from Brooklyn's Pratt Institute Art School in 1926. Originally, Blinn thought he could make a living as a fine artist, but during the Great Depression, he was able to survive only with the help of the WPA's American Paint & Sculpture project. Like so many other gifted
artists of the 1930s, Blinn's complete inability to sell paintings erased forever the dream of making a living as a fine artist.
