Hello and welcome to The Rob Burgess Show. I am, of course, your host, Rob Burgess.
On this our 218th episode, our guest is T. E. Breitenbach.
T. E. Breitenbach, born in 1951 in Queens, New York, is a self-taught American artist best known for his painting "Proverbidioms", a raucous and comical depiction of over 300 common proverbs and clichés. He also collaborated with Jim Morrison of The Doors, shortly before Morrison's 1971 death, on a painting intended for use on his "An American Prayer" album. T. E. was the youngest person to receive a Rome Prize Fellowship in visual arts. Inspired by the castles and museums of Europe, he returned home determined to build a castle-studio to house his art and eventually become a museum. During the planning stages he painted Proverbidioms and later published it. He also writes musicals and in 2016 produced "Hieronymus, A Musical Fantasy", the story of an artist with a 'too-large' imagination, available as play-on-demand on PBS. His websites include TEBreitenbach.com and OurMusical.com.
