Robert Genn was born in Victoria, B.C. Canada in 1936. His formal training included the University of Victoria, the University of British Columbia and the Art Center School in Los Angeles, California.

Recognized as one of Canada's most accomplished painters, his work is well known internationally. While his subjects are universal (he has painted in many countries), he excels in portraying Canada. He is perhaps best known for his work on the West Coast and in the Rocky Mountains. Robert passed away on May 27, 2014 after an 8-month challenge with pancreatic cancer. He is survived by his wife Carol of 50 years, and his three children David, James and Sara.

Robert's technique includes a tradition of strong design with patterns of colour and form, revealing a pervasive sense of personal style. Grand themes are transposed onto small panels and larger canvases in a manner similar to members of the Group of Seven. Robert worked principally in acrylic, though he did considerable work in oils, watercolour, and silk screen printing. The Robert Genn Archive is managed by Robert's daughter, artist Sara Genn. Dealers handling the archive and current prices can be viewed under the section.
