From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Robert Vickrey (born 1926) is a Massachusetts-based artist and author who specializes in the ancient medium of egg tempera. His paintings are surreal dreamlike visions of sunset shadows of bicycles, nuns in front of mural-painted brick walls, and children playing.

Robert Vickrey graduated from the Pomfret School then received a Bachelor of Arts degree from Yale University and a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the Yale School of Fine Arts. His works are in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Brooklyn Museum in New York, the Corcoran Gallery of Art, and The Museum of Modern Art, Rio de Janeiro.

Vickery received the Gerard Manley Hopkins Award for Excellence in the Arts from Fairfield University and the Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts in March 2009 where a retrospective exhibition of Vickrey's paintings from 1951-2007 was held at the Thomas J. Walsh Art Gallery. The award and exhibition coincided with the publication of "Robert Vickrey: The Magic of Realism," written by Dr. Philip Eliasoph, a Fairfield University professor of art history.[1]
