1978 Presentation Print of the Print Club of Rochester

Robert Marx is a Rochester treasure. His long and illustrious career includes recognition as a master printmaker, an illustrator of more than a dozen books, a distinguished professor of art, and a Fulbright scholar. Marx graduated from the University of Illinois in 1953 and has since been honored with numerous awards. He has had over 40 solo exhibitions of his prints, sculptures, and paintings around the world. Much of his life has been spent teaching at various universities including Syracuse University, the Fulbright School of Art in India, SUNY Brockport, and the University of Wisconsin. Marx says of his work,
"Images come from my surroundings, I distort my images according to my personal bias, and this distortion comes from remembering and inventing. I am a spectator, watching both myself and others. My paintings are a wordless game of conscience. The game is uncertain. My part in the game is observer. "
