Robert ‘Bob’ Hauschild learned his technical painting skills at an early age. He considered himself to be largely self-taught. His father, a Manhattan based commercial artist worked in his home studio and gave Bob full access to the art supplies.
Bob painted mostly in watercolor and acrylic and spent most of his adult life along the shoreline of the Long Island Sound. Hard edges, dramatic shadows and stark contrasts between light and dark are the hallmarks of his paintings.
Robert Hauschild had work featured on four New London Main Street posters and two works appeared on the cover and back plate of the Historic Waterfront District Map & Guide of New London. Studio 33, a fixture in New London for 34 years, currently represents and exhibits Robert Hauchild’s works, and pieces by him are regularly on display in a rotating basis.
Bob had solo shows at the Mystic Arts Center, the Slater Art Museum, the Alexy Von Schlippe Gallery of Art and the New London Maritime Museum. He participated in numerous group shows and his paintings won many awards. Hauschild was a professional artist member of the Alexy Von Schlippe Gallery of Art, the Connecticut Academy of Fine Arts, the Connecticut Watercolor Society, and the Mystic Arts Center. He is in the permanent collection at the Alexy Von Schlippe Gallery of Art, the Mystic Arts Center, the Mystic Seaport, and the New London office of the Chelsea-Groton Bank. Bob taught art privately, at the Mystic Arts Center and at the New London and Saybrook Adult Education programs. Bob died on January 29th, 2012. Margaret Palmer, his wife, muse and partner, continues to show and share his work.
