About Us        Robert Funk Fine Art shows an eclectic group of art works based on the quality of each work rather than a trend. Director Robert Funk's 50 years of experience brings a multi-perspective approach to presenting art. He had good teachers. As an undergrad in painting, he studied with first-generation abstract expressionist Robert Richenburg and hyper-realist painter Janet Fish and then in Graduate School for Art History with famed critic E.C. Goossen. He went on to work as a Photographer, New York Advertising Art Director, and Art Collector. These diverse visual experiences has made his thinking go outside the buzz of the myopic art world.
He believes the commercial art world acts as a primary source for the fine art world. "The big secret…most fine art outright copies commercial art. The unsung heroes of fine art exhibit their work in supermarkets, retail stores, TV and in factories." In addition to art sales, Robert has an art advisory service and works closely with private collectors in forming collections that will be relevant in the years to come. "There are so many great works of art of high quality out there at reasonable prices, but are overlooked because they are not in vogue. We try to train clients to look beyond the recent phenomena of database pricing to determine the value of a work. We encourage collectors to be students of Art History rather students of art prices."
