Robert Goldman

Biography from the Archives of askART

The following, submitted June 2002 and updated September 2015, is from the artist

Robert Goldman was born in 1948 in Illinois and moved with his family to Los Angeles, CA, in 1950. He has been interested in painting and drawing since his early childhood when he filled his second grade school papers with drawings rather than class work.

A serious interest in landscape painting began in 1978 when a friend gave him a French easel loaded with oil paints. He went out painting as often as possible, attempting to record observations of light and color. In the early 1980's he received coaching from Taos, NM artist Ray Vinella. Further studies with New York artist Wolf Kahn and California artist Wayne Thiebaud helped to provide a foundation for further development and investigation. Robert has continued to study with Phil Starke, Matt Smith, Ray Roberts, Bill Anton, Ned Jacobs plus others.

Goldman lived in San Diego from 1967-1993. After living in Tucson, Arizona from 1993 to 2013, he moved to Prescott, Arizona where he currently resides and where much of his work is based on scenes of the Grand Canyon, Vermillion Cliffs, and Southern Utah.
