The exhibition will be on display from January 12, 2023- February 25, 2023.

Courtesy of his daughter, Amy Flores, THELMA will be displaying a retrospective of several of Robert Knipschild’s artworks. On display will be oil and gauche paintings, woodblock prints, and encaustic works. Knipschild’s art exhibits a mastery of abstraction and impressionistic mark-making. His encaustic oils have an array of textures and depth that keep the eye moving through the painting. His subtle transitions of color create an almost meditative composition on the canvas. This retrospective exhibition is a must-see this winter.

Born in Freeport, Illinois, Robert Knipschild studied art under Zoltan Sepeshy at the Cranbrook Academy of Art. In 1950, at the age of twenty-three, his work was selected for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s widely acclaimed exhibition “American Painting Today.” Knipschild’s work has been exhibited in the Baltimore Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum, and the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, among others. In 1977, five of his paintings were acquisitioned by the Smithsonian Institution’s Hirschhorn Museum. After a brief illness, Robert Knipschild passed away on November 20, 2004.
