My Favorite Nathan Robinson Paintings

I first saw some of Nathan Robinson's art in Dr. Stuart N. Robinson's office (his nephew). I was immediately struck by how very nice the landscapes were. You don't often see such fine art in a therapeutic setting -- it certainly helps me stay calm to see such "comfort art"...

Nathan Robinson (20th Century) was active/lived in Arizona. He's best known for his portrait, landscape, and figure painting.

Born in Richmond, Virginia, Robinson had his first art training at William and Mary College Extension Division. Later he attended the National Academy of Design in New York and studied privately with Dimitri Romanovsky, noted portrait painter. After three years in New York, he returned to Richmond and ran an art school for eleven years. Then, for the health of his son, he moved the family to Arizona where he was associated with the Desert House in Tucson.
