The following biography is from Tim Kazior:

Robert Knipschild was born in 1927 in Freeport, Illinois. He studied at the University of Wisconsin and at Cranbrook Academy of Art where he worked under Zoltan Sepeshy.  In 1950, at the age of twenty-three, his work was selected for the Metropolitan Museum of Art's widely acclaimed exhibition "American Painting Today." Since that time he has received wide recognition, with many one-man shows and several prizes in important competitive exhibitions.

He has exhibited his work in such museums as the Boston Museum, the Baltimore Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum, the Corcoran Museum, the De Young Museum in San Francisco, the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, the Cincinnati Art Museum, and the Contemporary Art Center in Cincinnati.

Knipschild's work has been included in important surveys of American art including the annuals at the Whitney Museum, the Carnegie Institute, the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, the Butler Museum, and the Kansas City Museum. His work has also been exhibited in museums in Europe, Japan, and Australia.

Knipschild's work is in the collections of important American museums such as the Hirshhorn Museum, the Sculpture Garden, the Corcoran Museum, the Phillips Gallery, the Baltimore Museum, the Library of Congress, the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, the Cranbrook Museum, and the Illinois State Museum. You will also find his work in the collections of many colleges and universities throughout the country, such as the University of Cincinnati.

Biography from B. Deemer Gallery:
Robert Knipschild was a landscape painter with a highly evolved and poetic sense for abstraction. His achievement was to synthesize a painting style that interlocked idea and technique onto the modern picture plane. He held a particular interest in ancient art history, drawing elements from those origins and redeveloping them into a more contemporary context.

In 1950, Robert Knipschild’s work was selected for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s widely acclaimed exhibition “American Painting Today.” In the years since, he received worldwide recognition with over seventy-five solo exhibitions, and multiple retrospectives. He held the position of the director of graduate studies in Fine Art for the University of Cincinnati from 1967 through 1991, influencing many of the regions artists until his passing in 2004.
