The incredibly talented and widely collected artist James B. Robinson is honored during a retrospective exhibition in Texas. Where?
Known for its stable of outstanding contemporary and historical artists, InSight Gallery in Fredericksburg, Texas, opens a retrospective for the late James B. Robinson on January 23. A prolific painter of Western life and culture, Robinson was widely collected throughout the United States and was known as one of the preeminent painters of his generation.
The exhibition is sure to dazzle as it captures Robinson’s body of work, which includes pieces from private collections in addition to newly released paintings. As the gallery suggests, “all will culminate in a special and memorable evening celebrating one of Texas’ beloved artists.”
Considering Robinson’s work, it comes as no surprise that the artist was able to cultivate a robust following of collectors and admirers during his storied career. Works such as “Deep in the Heart of Texas” display a timeless luminosity and inner radiance. The painting appears to emit its own light through the artist’s brilliant application of paint. Further, the texture and expressive brushwork found on the surface of Robinson’s canvases is nearly as captivating as the artist’s delightful, balanced palette.
