About Bob Duff
Robert Duff, a native of South Eastern Massachusetts, grew up at the head of Herman Melville's Acushnet River.
An ideal childhood of long summer days spent exploring the shores of the river and roaming the fields of the local farms, left Bob with a deep appreciation for the beauty of New England.
"These memories, perhaps larger than life, are the catalyst for many of my paintings. I strive to bring you where I have been."
Often called a modern luminist, Robert developed his techniques from extensive studies of the extraordinary works of the 19th century Hudson River School Artists.
A 40-year career has brought a unique maturity and vision to his work. Accomplished as both a landscape and still life painter, his work shows an acute understanding of light and color.
Bob and his wife Debra work directly with their clients. This rewarding, collaborative style has resulted in the acquisition of his works for private and corporate collections worldwide.
"I choose to paint the beauty around me. With all the stress of everyday life, people want to see paintings of beautiful places. It is what I love to do."
