American-born painter Bob Camblin has achieved considerable acclaim with his oeuvre of elegant and humanistic modern art. Bob Camblin: N Compleat Workes examines this 20th century master’s career, the origins and development of his body of work, including the artist’s early drawings, paintings, sketchbook ruminations, and folklore. Camblin’s personal journey from a small Oklahoma oil town through years of experience and self-discovery, both stateside and abroad, and who dubbed Venice to be his “Emerald City,” led to this sharing of a lifetime of philosophy on canvas. Beginning at an early age with both parents interested in painting and drawing, he inadvertently began his career as the art director of his local high school newsletter. Attending the Kansas City Art Institute gave him the intellectual expansion and opportunity to take advantage of a variety of professors, among whom was Tom Cavanaugh who was instrumental in urging him to give a try at new techniques and mediums. Both were awarded Fulbright Scholarships to Italy. After being awestruck by what he saw at The Uffizi Gallery and at The Capuchin Catacombs of Palermo, he began a career as artist and teacher that spanned an ever-evolving creative lifetime. A catalog raisonneur, detailed biography, and bibliography complete this monograph, the foremost authority on the work of Bob Camblin.
