Robert Marx: Print Maker, Painter, and Sculptor

marx9

Robert Ernst Marx may live in western NY but his work reaches far beyond Rochester. His etchings, paintings, and sculptures have been exhibited in museums, galleries, and rare book rooms both here in the United States and in other countries. Marx has a BFA in painting and an MFA in printmaking. He has taught at many institutions including SUNY Brockport before he retired in 1990.

Brockport is where I met him and studied printmaking under him.Now I am an Art Librarian at the Central Library in Rochester and develop our art collection in many areas including printmaking. I have wanted to bring his work to the attention of our library patrons and to other members of the Rochester art community.  When I studied with Marx he was doing etchings with very dark backgrounds known in the etching world as an aquatint. He is now doing figurative oil paintings on linen and also doing sculpture.
