Robert Katz was born in Romania in 1952. Shortly after completing his formal education at L'ecole des Beaux Arts he spent several years living and painting in England, France and Italy immigrating to Canada in 1977.
The artist's technique is purely and uniquely his own. Capturing the infiltration of light and the tranquility of nature at her best he paints with a spiritual resolve influenced neither by praise nor officious critique. The artist communicates his impression of subject matter by means of a combination of astute observation with intuitively disciplined cognition. Totally disregarding the inessential he creates exquisite works from the intrinsic nature of his vision. The artist's paintings and sculptures are prized in private collections around the globe.
Robert Katz's landscapes show a harmonious balance between brushstrokes and color, they have a museum quality old-world charm that brings to mind the early European Masters.
