Experience The Unique Robert Girrard Style

The next time you are in Memphis, we invite you to stop by Thomas Kinkade’s Inspiration Art Gallery to experience the artwork of Robert Girrard. For a period of six years, Thomas Kinkade painted under the brush name of Robert Girrard. This anonymity allowed him the freedom to experiment in style and subject matter, to explore with palette, brush strokes and broken color. He employed techniques utilized by the French Impressionists – Monet, Manet and Renoir – techniques which have influenced the style that has become world-renowned through The Painter of Light™.

His energetic brushstrokes, pops of color against a soft backdrop and slice of life themes all convey a sense of spontaneity and deep familiarity with the subject of each painting.

French Influenced Western Art

Taking a page from the notebooks of French Impressionistic painters like Claude Monet, Paul Cézanne, Edgar Degas, and Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Robert Girrard manages to take everyday landscapes, cityscapes, seascapes, and tranquil cottages and turn them into paintings full of movement and emotion. Some of these enchanting pieces include:

  • The Cottage
  • Blue Boulevard
  • City Of Light
  • Winters Dusk
  • Summer Breeze
  • Rainy Dusk, Paris

Warm light seems to glow from The Cottage. You can almost hear the horses footsteps as buggies make tracks through the falling snow in Blue Boulevard. Light plays with the wind upon the waters in Summer Breeze. Come see us in Memphis to find out how these masterpieces of playfulness and vision can compliment your living space. See how the freedom of Robert Girrard influenced Thomas Kinkade and allowed him to play and experiment in the medium he loved creating masterpieces of movement and light.
