Robert LaHotan was a painter known for landscapes and still lifes of lyrical color and subtle force. Whether he was painting the Maine forest at dusk or a bouquet of wild flowers in morning light, LaHotan brought to his work an abiding sense of mystery, a personal way of distilling a poetic moment from the canvases’ ethereal depths. LaHotan is represented by the Kraushaar Galleries in New York; his paintings are in private and public collections across the United States. He was a member of the National Academy of Art, and a recipient of a Fulbright Grant in 1951. LaHotan lived in New York City and Cranberry Island, Maine.
