Robert Cottingham (b. 1935, Brooklyn, New York) is best known for his Photorealist paintings and drawings of Americans including mid-20-century signage, railroad boxcars, and vintage cameras. His monumental canvases exaggerate the scale of his subjects and highlight their complex geometry. He attended Pratt Institute and taught at the Art Center College of Design in Los Angeles, and currently resides in Connecticut.
