Robert W. Addison-Farm Wagon 19/40.
Anne (01/22/2011)
To George Levy: Robert Addison was a master with the art of creating serigraphs (a print made using a stencil process in which an image or design is superimposed on a very fine mesh screen and printing ink is squeegeed onto the printing surface through the area of the screen that is not covered by the stencil; [[]syn: silkscreen, silk screen print, serigraph]. What you have is #19 in a run of 40 serigraphs for Farm Wagon. This is not considered a print but is a specific art form like etchings, lithographs, etc.

"The Mill" 1978
Kelly Fields (04/02/2010)
My Mother and Father bought a large and very beautiful painting called (The Mill) 1978, signed by Robert Addison and purchased through the Chase Gallery in Oak Brook, IL. I am wondering if this is the historic Grau Mill?

Paradise Theater
Rachael Williams (01/24/2009)
My father worked with Mr. Addison at Ficho & Corley. When my father died in 1979 Mr. Addison asked my mother if there was anything he could do. She asked him to paint a picture of the Paradise Theater on Roosevelt Road in Chicago. It was a place my parents often went. The print is signed and has the letters TP in the bottom left hand corner. Are there any more prints of the Paradise out there?

The first time I saw Carousel I fell in love with art. That was in 1995! There is always one person that makes you fall in love with their creations. I have never stopped loving art. But I have persued having this piece. I have enjoyed reading those that knew him or his wife. I have kept the kodak photo of Carousel and Quiet Night with me all of these years. Quiet Night reminds of years gone by at home. Carousel actually speaks to my soul. That was a very difficult time for many in the world.

general, personal observation
Francis T. Pistorio (04/04/2007)
I own 30 different Addison serigraphs.. I just love his work. I met him once. He had the brightest, most lively eyes I have ever seen. He certainly was a gifted artist. Pity he died so young. God rest his soul.

Robert Addison Serigraph
John Van Horn (03/25/2007)
Looking for an appraisal value for a signed Robert Addison serigraph titled "Dark Entry" it is a serigraph of the old McCormick Mansion's entry. I have never seen this particular serigraph mentioned although it is one of a numbered series #173/175

Robert Addison + Borden's
Connie Scanlan (12/14/2006)
I own an Addison print, "Where Have All The Children Gone" and am trying to learn if Addison did this print by way of a commission for Borden's Dairy. Seems I heard 'way back when, you could obtain this print through them, possibly a promotional item. Any truth?

similar to the hiding place
Vicki (12/30/2005)
Just bought what we think was a advertising piece that is quite similar to the hiding place (boy near water with trees). Wondered if anyone knows what it might be from. There is no bridge, just facing the boy at waters edge.

Robert W. Addison
Michael Reynolds (07/18/2003)
I had the pleasure of being in Bob's company a number of times, as he was married to Betsy Wickman Addison, my mother's cousin. Bob was extremely intelligent and engaging, a great conversationalist, not to mention a highly gifted artist. His widow, Betsy, is an artist in her own right. Her apartment reflects all the varied interests she and Bob shared - art, family, literature, antiques, music, design and more. She has told me that an organ built by Bob is apparently set to be installed in a newly-refurbished chapel in the Episcopal cathedral in San Francisco, which would have pleased Bob immensely.

Robert W. Addison
Julie Marino (05/28/2003)
Robert Addison also worked at Ficho & Corley art studio in the John Hancock Building (where he also lived) in the 70's and 80's. Although he was well-known for his nostalgic paintings of serene neighborhoods, along with his carousel series, he also provided art for the advertising world. Addison was a master at lighting, creating dramatic shadows in his work. He always said he was best at landscapes, but he provided beautiful portraits of famous Chicagoans for a "celebrity" wall for a Wendy's opening in the Chicago loop in the early 80's, along with miniature sculptures for a lighter series for Vasilia, Ltd in Chicago. These are the only sculptures he ever did, and they were/are magnificent. Even he was pleased with them. On a personal note, Bob was a warm, friendly and humble man.
