Biography from Fred R. Kline Gallery, Inc.:
Submitted, with revisions and updating, by Fred R. Kline, Fred R. Kline Gallery; quoted primarily from: Peter Rogers, A PAINTER'S QUEST: ART AS A WAY OF REVELATION (Bear & Company, Santa Fe, 1987), and from Kline Art Research Associates, Peter Rogers files.

PETER WILFRID ROGERS (Brtish-American painter, b. London, August 24,1933; working in the United States since 1963, primarily in Santa Fe and San Patricio, New Mexico; a visionary artist and writer who paints in a distinctive figurative-symbolic style in development of his unique Quest-genre.)

There were no other painters in Peter Rogers's family, although his maternal grandfather, Harry Marillier, was closely associated with the Pre-Raphaelites and was the leading authority in his day on tapestry. Educated at Sherborne, Rogers did his initial National Service with the Welch Guards and then as 2nd Lt. in the Queen's Royal Regiment. Following military service, he studied at St. Martin's School of Art and in 1957 was elected a member of Royal Society of British Artists. In 1960, the noted London gallery Arthur Tooth and Sons became his exclusive dealer for a number of years.

In 1962 Rogers moved to Spain and while there met Carol Hurd, an artist and daughter of the painters Peter Hurd and Henriette Wyeth Hurd. In 1963 Carol and Peter moved to the United States and married, settling on the Hurd's ranch in San Patricio, New Mexico. From that time, Rogers worked on a variety of commissions (murals, portraits, documentary)and on the development of the Quest theme, which had been evolving and materializing as his predominate and abiding interest since 1949 when he was sixteen. After a period of painting in Santa Fe from 1975-83, Peter and Carol returned to the San Patricio ranch where they continue to live and work. They have three children: Peter (known as the painter, Peter de la Fuente), Gabriela, and David (also a painter). Besides THE PAINTER'S QUEST (1987), Peter Rogers has written and illustrated a further development of his Quest theme, IMAGES OF THE WAY (ca. 2005). He has also written THE DARK LADY MYSTERY (2004), an investigation into the related identities of Edward de Vere, the 17th Earl of Oxford, and William Shakespeare.

Commentary on Peter Rogers's art and writing has been published by a diverse and
appreciative audience:

"Not since William Blake has an artist come to my attention who speaks so simply and beautifully about spirituality and mysticism."
--John Hamilton, Art Critic

"Here is an artist whose concerns are genuinely philosophical, religious, mystical, and who takes seriously the notion that art--along with science, religion and philosophy--is one of the four ways of knowing and expressing the truth. Rogers'moral and visionary commitment makes him the kind of artist that the great existential philosophers, Camus and Sartre, would have applauded. A PAINTERS QUEST is a model of the new paradigm, a complete expression of the hidden harmony which is the world itself."
--Jose Arguelles, Ph.D., author of THE TRANSFORMATIVE VISION

"Peter Rogers is that rare and fortunate being, a first-class painter by any standards who has something to say that is of vital interest to all his generation. Such men have helped the flow of consciousness that combats the apathy and doubts that assail us all. Like Giotto and Blake, he reminds us of our childhood dreams and aspirations. The age in which we live supports many good painters and sculptors, but most of them have literally nothing to say."
--David Wynne, British Sculptor

"Peter Rogers' visionary images speak truly of the union of heaven and earth. Here is an artist who knows how the spiritual and material realms live together, and they are realized in each other in his solid, immanent, beautiful paintings. Here is that rare artist: one who helps us to see and believe."
--Meinrad Craighead, author of THE MOTHER'S SONG
