Robert W. Wood was born on March 4, 1889 in England, and died in the mountain town of Bishop, Ca. in the spring of 1979 at the age of ninety, just a month before a large retrospective exhibition was mounted at the Morseburg Galleries in Los Angeles, by Howard Morseburg and the Newport Beach gallery owner Raymond Hagen.

From his many trips crisscrossing the American continent, he presented us with a record of the unspoiled American landscape. In a very real sense his paintings are an invaluable document of our rapidly vanishing wilderness and pristine seashores, as only Robert Wood could articulate these themes.

R.Wood was an extremely facile painter and his artistic production was substantial, in excess of 5,000 completed works. His work is sold at galleries specializing in historic American art and is sold frequently at auction, with his auction record in excess of $40,000.

 

Роберт У. Вуд родился 4 марта 1889 года в Англии и умер в небольшом городке Калифорнии весной 1979 года в возрасте 90 лет всего за месяц до открытия его юбилейная ретроспективной выставки. Его работы были представлены в Лос-Анджелесе и Ньюпорт-Бич. 

Р. Вуд оставил значительную  коллекцию своих картин – более 5000 завершенных работ. Его пейзажная живопись продается в галереях, специализирующихся на историческом американском искусстве и часто уходит с молотка  на аукционах за десятки тысяч долларов.
