Robert Crowder: Artist.



As an artist, Robert Crowder’s body of work is unparalleled.  From Japanese Byobu screen painting to hand-painted wall coverings to hand-woven fabrics, his artistic sensibilities are evident in everything he did.  His uncompleted series, “The Endangered Birds of Japan,” are evidence of the work of a genius.


The Heredity of Excellence

Robert Crowder’s attitude and creative spirit was inherited by his protege, Yasu Tanano.  In the video, Yasu tells us more about this incredibly gifted man and how his artistic legacy continues to live on.

Robert’s creativity was not limited to painting and art.  He was also an accomplished musician, classically trained as a violinist and a pianist.  He was also a published poet and author.
