To quote Cathy Viksjo, a regional art critic and author of an article in the Bucks County Town and Country Living magazine: "Coming across the paintings of Robert Seufert is like unexpectedly finding the crown jewels buried in your back yard". With a B.F.A. from Temple University's Tyler School of Art, Robert J. Seufert works full time as a professional artist. He and his wife Alice Olson Seufert, a watercolorist and art teacher, share studio space in their suburban Bucks County home. They have three children.
Robert Seufert's paintings can best be described as being realistic in style with a very delicate, meticulous use of the painting knife to achieve an unusual effect. Details of individual leaves and other elements of nature are rendered by a stippling process, which has been described as very similar to that used by French Post-Impressionist Georges Seurat, in his innovative technique of pointillism. He is principally a landscape painter, with most of his subject matter derived from Bucks County, Pennsylvania.
Painting professionally since 1968, Mr. Seufert has won nearly one hundred awards including many best of shows and first prizes. His works have been accepted into numerous national and regional juried exhibitions. Three of Robert's oil paintings are in the permanent collection of the James A. Michener Art Museum, Doylestown, Pennsylvania. He recently captured the "Casimir and Jane P. Sienkiewicz Award" for a traditional painting in the style of the New Hope School at the Phillips Mill exhibition in Solebury. This was the third award he has won at Phillips Mill for his oil paintings.
