(1930, Racine, Wisconsin - )
Born in Racine in 1930, Robert Burkert would gain a rich education in art early when he received a scholarship to take classes and print make at the Charles A. Wustum Museum of Fine Arts. There, he studied under director and landscape painter, Sylvester Jerry, and artist, Cherry B. Jerry. Meanwhile, at Racine Washington Park High School, Burkert studied under well-known landscape and still-life painter, Helen Sawyer.
Among printmaking, Burkert was also interested in comic art while he was a teenager. This led to early artistic recognition when he was given the opportunity to create comic strips for the Chicago Tribune.
