This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Robert Montanucci (b.1953)

He was born in San Jose, California in 1953 and raised in the farming community of Dos Palos in Central California.  He grew up in an artistic family where his father Aldo, who was an artist himself, introduced Robert to the works of American Realists on trips to visit Carmel art galleries.  Montanucci was encouraged to continue his art endeavors and as an art major had his first solo exhibit at Merced College in 1974.  It was this sell-out show that launched his career as a professional artist and within several months, he was selling his work at a prestigious gallery in Carmel as the youngest artist ever to be accepted by the gallery.
 
The subjects and styles for which the artist's work is best known are:  Still-life oil paintings in the trompe-l'oeil style, including fruits, vegetables, floral, western and Native American subject matter.  The artist is also known for his surrealist works and two and a half dimensional 'cutout' paintings.
 
The art movement that the artist is most closely identified with is: 20th Century California Realism including the works of Gerald Stinski.
