Oil on canvas
Robert's work is available at our Concord gallery.
ROBERT STEINEM was born in New York City and raised in Washington, DC. As a young man, his painting was influenced by the surrealists, particularly de Chirico and Magritte. After an eye injury in the Marines, Steinem quit painting for twenty years. Even though he is legally blind, Steinem is able to paint with the use of special glasses and an easel that is strong enough to stand on. His detail work requires an almost “nose to canvas” approach. Since the mid-1990’s, Steinem has concentrated entirely on his painting career. His home and studio are in rural Massachusetts at the foothills of the Green Mountains, where he lives with his wife Kathy. He also spends part of each year in Washington, D.C. and in coastal South Carolina. Robert is a represented artist at Three Stones Gallery.
