Robert DUNCAN, 1952 ✿

Robert Duncan is an American West artist. He is a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, was born in Salt Lake City in 1952 and grew up in a large family of ten children. He spent the summers helping his grandparents on their 10,000 acre cattle ranch in Wyoming. The Green River ran through their land from its source high in the Rocky Mountains.
It was surrounded by beautiful open country and he fell in love with the rural lifestyle. He drew constantly from the age of five, and when he was eleven, his grandmother gave him his first set of paints and paid for three oil painting lessons. He studied art at the University of Utah and had worked as a commercial artist before his full-time dedication to the fine art of the American West.
Robert has traveled extensively throughout his career to visit museums and study the great artists he admires. His travels have included journeys to Russia, Scandinavia, many trips to Europe, and frequent trips to the East Coast and Canada. Robert was elected into the Cowboy Artists of America at 29 years of age and won two silver medals in their annual exhibition at the Phoenix Art Museum.

Nei miei occhi la lontananza
un tunnel a senso unico d'organza
e ti lascio qualche verso
da un oceano di parole...
