With compelling subjects and exacting technique, Racine, WI native Robert Burkert long ago established himself as a significant contemporary printmaker and draftsman. Willing to experiment with materials and approaches, he has also gained the reputation of being a risk-taker who applies his technical facility to creating drawings with graphite, color pencil, watercolor, and/or silverpoint, lithographs, serigraphs, monoprints, and oil paintings.

With a recent donation of over 20 prints and drawings that builds on an established archive, RAM has become one of the largest repositories of his work.
