It’s in the details
Robert Pengelly at Archival Framing
It’s not surprising to discover that English-born artist Robert Pengelly worked as a cartographer and an architectural illustrator earlier in his career. A U.S. citizen since 2000, Pengelly has a penchant for painting buildings—houses, especially—but those of an older era. It makes sense that he gravitates to rendering Victorian structures, too, with their fanciful components, like rounded buttresses and fish-scale siding, which he paints with accuracy and mesmerizing detail.
