(1921 - 2008)
Robert White was active/lived in Pennsylvania, Virginia. Robert White is known for trompe l'oeil still life painting.
The following information came from Little Terrace Gallery, New Hope Pennsylvania, 1963:
Robert White, a local artist whose realist paintings are on permanent exhibit at the Little Terrace Gallery, is already acclaimed as "the young genius who paints in the techniques of the Flemish Florentine Old Masters."
After several years of study under Jacques Maroger, Technical Director of the restoration laboratories at the Louvre in Paris, and author of The Secret Formulas and Techniques of the Masters, Robert White acquired the formula for reconstructing the oil medium used by the Dutch and Italian masters of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.
Robert White has achieved recognition as a Trompe l' oeil and representational still life expert - a field in which very few artists can succeed, because of its technical and artistic demands. His paintings have been exhibited at the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, D. C., The Peale Museum and the Baltimore Museum of Art in Maryland, the well known Grand Central Art Galleries and the Wickersham Gallery in New York City. His paintings hand in many private collections, including those of Mr. Charles White, Chairman of the Board of Republic Steel Corporation, Mr. Charles Bartlett, the well known Washington columnist, and in the collection of International Telephone and Telegraph to name a few.
