Charles Timothy Prutzer captures the wild. Working in watercolor, oil, and acrylic, his work shows remarkable range. He often sketches and paints plein air, from living subjects, not photographs, saying, “Distant snapshots don’t contain the spirit or honesty captured in plein air.”

At the age of 17, Prutzer began his extensive career as the youngest background artist on staff at the Denver Museum of Natural History. He has completed more than 30 large-scale wildlife murals for natural history museums, zoos, and nature reserves in the United States and abroad, including a three-dimensional, 60’ x 30’ cheetah and grey buck diorama in South Africa.

Prutzer is one of only a handful of Americans invited to participate in field expeditions with the Artists for Nature Foundation, an international organization promoting nature conservation though art. A Colorado native, Prutzer developed and taught drawing-from-life college courses at Colorado zoos. He studied with renowned bird artist Donald Malick, museum artist William Traher, and Prix de West sculptor and painter George Carlson.

Four Decades – Four Mediums – Four Continents
Charles Timothy Prutzer officially began his career as a mural artist at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science in 1971. His murals are also in public and corporate collections including the Denver Zoologic Foundation in Denver, Colorado, the Nature Conservation Department in Transvaal, South Africa and the Rocky Mountain National Park.

His first and true passion has always been the more intimate paintings for private collections. These works have been shown in museums and exhibitions around the world, including the Beijing Natural History Museum, The People’s Republic of China; the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum, Wausau, Wisconsin; the Carnegie Museum of Natural History, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; the Museo Nacional de Ciencias Naturales in Madrid Spain and the Burrell Collection in Glasgow, Scotland.

Tim has been invited to work with several international wildlife projects. In 1994, he participated in the Artists for Nature Foundation’s Expedition to Extremadura, Spain. He also went to India in 1997 as part of the Foundation’s Project; Tiger at the Bandhavgarh Nature Reserve.

His work has been published in Best of Wildlife Art, edited by Rachel Rudin Wolf, 1999; Wildlife Art, edited by Edward Aldrich, 1998; and Artists for Nature in Extremadura, edited by Nicholas Hammond, 1995.

"Moore Art: A Family Affair"

Exhibition, Reception, and Sale

Colorado Springs, CO – Broadmoor Galleries is excited to announce ” Moore Art: A Family Affair,” a special exhibition featuring the works of American impressionist painter Robert Moore and his two children, Anna, and Robbie Moore. The exhibition will open on May, 18, 2023, and run through June 8th, 2023, at Broadmoor Galleries located at The Broadmoor, 1 Lake Avenue, Colorado Springs, CO 80906.

WHAT:    Moore Art: A Family Affair

WHO:      Featuring:
                 Robert Moore, Anna Moore, and Robbie Moore

WHEN:    Thursday, May 18th, from 4-8PM

WHERE:  Broadmoor Galleries at the Broadmoor Hotel
                  1 Lake Circle
                  Colorado Springs CO 80906


Broadmoor Galleries in Colorado Springs is proud to present “Moore Art: A Family Affair,” an exhibition that showcases the unique artistic styles of American impressionist artist Robert Moore, and his two children, Anna, and Robbie Moore. Robert, who is colorblind and paints with both hands simultaneously, has established himself as a prominent figure in the art world, and his children have followed in his footsteps.

Robert Moore, a celebrated American painter who is colorblind and paints with both hands simultaneously, is known for his signature landscapes, cityscapes, and portraits. The exhibition will showcase a range of Moore’s works alongside those of his talented children.

“Moore Art: A Family Affair” is a unique opportunity to experience the work of three incredibly talented artists from the same family,” said Broadmoor Galleries director, Jamie Oberloh. “Robert Moore’s impressionistic style is a true representation of the beauty and diversity of America, and his children Anna and Robbie are following in his footsteps with their own unique styles and techniques.”

Robert Moore’s artistic achievements are all the more remarkable given that he is colorblind. Despite this, he has become known for his ability to create vivid and striking color palettes in his paintings. He has also developed a unique technique of painting with both hands simultaneously, which allows him to create intricate details and textures in his works.

Moore’s use of both hands to paint has been compared to the way a pianist uses both hands to play a complex piece of music. This technique requires a great deal of focus and coordination, and it has become one of Moore’s signature methods.

Moore’s colorblindness has also influenced his work in other ways. He has said that he is drawn to painting landscapes because he is able to see the world in shades of green, which he can differentiate more easily than other colors. This has led him to develop a deep appreciation for the beauty of nature and the environment.

Despite his colorblindness and unique painting technique, Robert Moore has become one of America’s most beloved impressionist painters. His works continue to inspire and captivate viewers, and his contributions to American art are truly remarkable.

Anna Moore, a professional artist in her own right, draws inspiration from her father’s work and her surroundings, using her skillful brushstrokes to capture the essence of nature in her landscapes. She works in a variety of media, including oil painting, watercolor, and printmaking. Her work is inspired by the natural beauty of the American West and the people and places that inhabit it.  

Robbie Moore, who recently graduated with a Finance degree from the University of Arkansas, has always had a passion for art and the natural world. He has developed his skills in drawing, gouache, watercolor, and oil painting, and his work has been featured in a company calendar commissioned by his employer. With his father’s legacy of developing artists and a lineage of artists in his family, Robbie’s future aspiration is to make the most out of his upbringing and create a name for himself in the art world.

“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to showcase the work of three incredibly talented artists,” said Broadmoor Galleries’ director, Jamie Oberloh. “The combination of Robert’s impressionistic paintings with Anna and Robbie’s unique styles and mediums creates a truly exceptional exhibition that will delight and inspire our visitors. Their paintings are a true representation of the beauty and diversity of America, and we are honored to share the work with our community.”

The exhibition will be open to the public from May 18th, 2023, through June 8th, 2023, and will feature a special reception on May 18th, 2023, from 4-8 pm, where visitors can meet the artists and enjoy light refreshments. All works in the exhibition will be available for sale.
