AN AMERICAN REMEMBRANCE, The Art of Bob Crofut, "Golden Moments from a Simpler Time."

Bob Crofut is a Connecticut native, where his family has lived for generations. He has a B.F.A. from Tufts University and also attended the Museum School of Fine Arts from 1970-1974.

Recognized for his exhaustive research and unique ability to evoke the emotional atmosphere of the past, Crofut has appeared in such magazines as National Geographic, Time, Smithsonian, Reader's Digest, American Heritage, and Yankee. His work has also been sought after by major corporations, among them MOM, NBC, IBM, Ford, and Exxon. His art has been displayed widely in galleries, museums, and private collections, and he is included in the prestigious publication The Illustrator in America. He was also recently honored to be mentioned in a New Yorker magazine Talk of the Town piece about America's foremost portrait artist, John Howard Sanden. When Sanden was asked who his favorite artists were, he named three, one of whom was Bob Crofut.

Though all of Crofut's paintings address some aspect of our national identity, they are notably diverse in mood and subject matter, enabling Crofut to portray the dignity of an Indian brave or the innocence of a prayerful child with equal depth and impact. "One of my objectives is to represent the multifaceted nature of the American experience. I want the viewer to be impressed not only with the strength and fortitude of our ancestors, but also with peaceful simplicity and nostalgia of the times," says Crofut.

He further describes his paintings as artistic time capsules transporting the viewer to a congenial, unhurried era far from the distractions of modern life: "When someone looks at my work, I want it to release him from the present and allow him to reminisce for a moment before returning to his daily activities refreshed and uplifted."

Dear Friends:

This print was purchased from original publisher in the 90s and early 2000. Each of these prints have been stored in our warehouse and are in perfect condition. In the 90s I was very active in the business of buying and selling art. As my other businesses became more demanding I was unable to continue indulging my hobby. The majority of the prints are still in the original boxes sent from the publisher and artists. Please feel secure in the fact that the prints are in pristine condition and will be shipped flat . I have shipped over a hundred plus pieces of art over the last six months and I have not had one damaged in shipping. I am very motivated to sell these remaining prints majority of which are all "sold out" from the publisher Make Me An Offer you might just catch me at a very weak moment, you can't insult me I just may say no, but I might say yes, let me know and feel free to send me an e-mail I will respond quickly.

Andy Thomas is not only an immensely talented painter, but also a storyteller with the images he creates. His subject matter consists of a variety of images from historical events to intimate moments of everyday life.

Primarily self-taught, Thomas began his professional art career in 1991 after sixteen years with a major advertising agency. In his studio, the artist creates his unique paintings that tell their “stories.” Thomas says, “I never consciously ponder elements of design or princip...
