Dry Tortugas 1994 Original Oil Painting in excellent condition. Measures 36"H x 48"W without frame. Signed on lower right 94. Robert Charles Gruppe, a contemporary impressionist painter, was born in 1944, the son of the legendary Emile A. Gruppe, and the grandson of Charles Paul Gruppe. Robert C. Gruppe’s plein-air paintings of landscapes and harbor scenes capture the images and spirit reflecting his own evolving personal vision and style. His paintings are intended to capture the light, movement and mood of the composition he views. Gruppe studied for 20 years with his father, Emile A. Gruppe. A product of the Gloucester School of Art, he also studied drawing under the tutelage of sculptor George Demetrios. Within his current work is his own personal study of art focused on expanding his understanding of the physical and expressive qualities of paintings. Exploring design, composition and technique on smaller canvasses, he turns to larger paintings to make more evident his spirit of exploration
