Robert Crisp

Inspiration comes from the urban, man-made landscape with its symmetry, balance and imposing grandeur. From the wonderful buildings of London, Paris, Venice and other major cities, to qaint villages and harbours, man has created his own landscape. Robert Crisp paintings clearly show that his skills lie in the ability to execute exquisite attention to detail and capture the very essence of urban life. 

Graduating in the 1960's Robert Crisp was a student of Guildford, Croydon and Nottingham Schools of Art, graduating in stage design and painting. He moved to Devon in the 1970's to concentrate on painting and picture restoration. Robert started painting full time in 1992, working from a studio in Sidmouth.
