Printmaker and painter Robert Conover studied at the Philadelphia Museum School, the Barnes Foundation, the Art Students League and the Brooklyn Museum Art School. He taught for many years at the Lenox School and the Newark School of Fine and Industrial Art. He was a member of the National Academy of Design and is a member of the Society of American Graphic Artists.
His wonderful images of derelict structures are both realist and abstract. These images often show images of the city rarely seen.
