Robert Kipniss is an award-winning painter and printmaker whose work has been shown for seven decades in one-artist exhibitions in many art galleries and museums in New York City, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, and Boston as well as in London, Vienna, Paris, Germany, and other cities around the world.
For over five decades, Robert Kipniss has prolifically produced paintings, prints, and drawings of remarkable beauty, eloquence, and refinement... he has gained international recognition for his distinctly American images of spacious landscapes and smalltown vistas, as well as quiet interiors and intimate still lifes. Following in the footsteps of such esteemed predecessors as Paul Cezanne and Giorgio Morandi, the artist has faithfully investigated and reexamined these familiar, humble subjects...He has never felt confined or restricted by their narrow range; rather, he is liberated within it... Kipniss's art has always clearly bespoken his independent spirit and lifelong embrace of solitude.
~ Daniel Piersol, curator for Seen In Solitude: Robert Kipniss Prints from the James F. White Collection, an exhibition at the New Orleans Museum of Art in 2006.
