Robert’s technique includes a tradition of strong design with patterns of color and form, with a pervasive sense of personal style. Grand themes are transposed onto small panels and larger canvases in a manner similar to members of the Group of Seven. Most of Robert’s work is in acrylic. He has also done considerable work in oils, watercolour, and silk screen printing.

Robert Genn

Recognized as one of Canada’s most accomplished painters, his work is well known internationally. While his subjects are universal (he has painted in many countries), he excels in portraying Canada. He is perhaps best known for his work on the West Coast and in the Rocky Mountains. Robert passed away on May 27, 2014 after an 8-month challenge with pancreatic cancer. He is survived by his wife Carol of 50 years, and his three children David, James and Sara. The Robert Genn Archive is managed by Robert’s daughter, artist Sara Genn. Dealers handling the archive and current prices can be viewed under the section at http://www.robertgenn.com/
