Robert Cottingham (b. 1935, Brooklyn) is an American photorealist painter. The presence of Americana characterizes the vast majority of Cottingham’s work. His works often reflect a proficient understanding of the interplay between light and perspective. In this way, Cottingham assigns a prominence to illumination that serves to underscore details of the ordinary that normally exist unnoticed. He studied at the Pratt Institute and was awarded a B.F.A. in 1963. His work has been exhibited in France and across the U.S., especially in Southern California, Connecticut, and New York. In 1998, a retrospective of his work was showcased at the Smithsonian American Art Museum.
