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's technique includes a tradition of strong design with patterns of color and form, with 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. Most of Robert's current work is in acrylic. He has also done considerable work in oils, watercolour, and silk screen printing. Connections to dealers who handle Robert Genn paintings and current prices can be viewed under the section.

Genn's autobiographical book In Praise of Painting provides an insight into the progress and trials of a Canadian painter. Other of Genn's publications include The Dreamway, The Painter's Keys, Love Letters to Art and The Twice-Weekly Letters: July 10, 1999 to Sept 25, 2009
