The Landscapes at Buffalo State Collection

The Landscape Collection

It was during the years that Robert Wilson taught design at Buffalo State College that he became best known for his landscape paintings. His painting style always addresses his keen personal observations of the various regions of the country where he lived and document the places and events significant in his life. The personal style of his work is characterized by the use of dramatic color, amplified space and intricate textural pattern and detail. The Buffalo State collection includes 18 examples of landscapes that represent various regions of the country painted during the years of 1970 - 1990.
