Robert Sudlow (1920 – 2010).  Born in Holton, Kansas, he earned a BFA from the University of Kansas in 1942 and an MFA from the California College of Arts & Crafts in 1956 studying with Richard Diebenkorn. He furthered his studies at the Academie Andre’ Lhote and the Academie de la Grand Chaumie’re, both in Paris, and at the University of California, Berkeley. Enlisting in the Navy shortly after the outbreak of WWII, he served as a Navy Rescue pilot where he was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross. Following the war he joined the faculty at the University of Kansas in 1946 and continued  teaching there until his retirement in 1987. His art career encompassed more than 60 years and continued into his retirement where he expressed his love of nature by portraying  the landscapes of Kansas through his oil paintings and lithographs. His work has been featured in numerous exhibitions and is included in the collections of the St. Louis Art Museum; Cleveland Museum of Art; Joslyn Art Museum; Mulvane Art Museum; Albrecht-Kemper Museum; Brooklyn Museum; Nelson-Atkins Museum; Sheldon Memorial Art Gallery; Spencer Museum of Art, and the Beach Museum of Art. Shown is one of six tinted lithographs on paper titled in the lower left margin, “Lone Star Runoff.” Because Sudlow, the artist, created the six editions as a cohesive set, the lithographs cannot be offered for sale individually.
