About Robert Royhl
Robert Royhl is a painter who has been living and working in Bozeman, Montana, for the past thirty-four years. Born in NYC in 1949, he grew up in Tucson, Arizona, and has lived and traveled all over the West. Currently, he is working on a series of paintings called “Across the Wide Missouri.” This is his meditation on what we have wrought in the far west landscape and about the new realities we are creating in our trajectory through the 21st century.
Widely exhibited since the early 1970s, Robert has shown his work in numerous galleries and museums in California, Arizona, Japan, and Montana. He recently had two pieces in the Art Auction Show at the Yellowstone Art Museum in Billings. He has also been creating books, and his “Catalog Raisonne - 400” was finished in 2019. In the last year, he worked on a series of books based on his sketchbook journals. “Kyoto, Journals 1996-2001” is a book on his art adventures in Japan, which came out in March, and most recently “Sonora, Journals 1981/82,” which will be out this summer. Next year, he will show his newest work at Aunt Dofe’s House of Memories in Willow Creek with his wife, artist Gesine Janzen.
He taught painting, drawing, and printmaking at Montana State University from 1987 until 2006.
