Robert Cottingham

American, b. 1935

Robert Cottingham began his career as an advertising art director in Los Angeles. Cottingham’s first easel paintings were of scenes outside his office window in Los Angeles. Although he is known for his photo-realistic depictions of signs, storefront marquees, railroad boxcars, and letterforms, Cottingham does not consider himself a photorealist artist. His imagery, while derived from photographs he takes, expands on the photographic image, it does not replicate it. Works by Robert Cottingham have been included in exhibitions of American art, realism, hyper-realism, photorealism, railroad imagery, and printmaking at important museums worldwide. A retrospective of Robert Cottingham’s print work was organized and exhibited by the National Museum of American Art, Smithsonian Institution, Washington, DC in 1998.
