Robert C. Morgan

Robert C. Morgan (1947, Massachusetts, USA) is an internationally renowned art critic, artist, writer, art historian, and lecturer. Over the course of his 50-year studio practice Morgan has maintained a dedicated focus testing the limits of abstraction to explore the potential for geometric form to suggest space and depth within a picture plane. His architectonic approach utilizes a deliberately restrained scale and a limited color pallet to enhance the viewer’s awareness of the interplay between compositional elements as well as the sense of space suggested by the reflection vs. absorption of light by his canvas’s pigments.

Morgan holds an MFA in Sculpture from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst (1975), and a Ph.D. in contemporary art history and aesthetics from the School of Education, New York University (1978). Dr. Morgan lives in New York, where he lectures at the School of Visual Arts and Pratt Institute. He is Professor Emeritus in Art History from the Rochester Institute of Technology and  a member of the European Academy of Sciences and Arts in Salzburg, Austria (2011-present).
