William Thomas Rowe
Working mainly in oil using Maroger medium, Thomas Rowe makes paintings that, while representational in style, transcend realism in his use of content and style.

He was one of the original founding members of the 6 Realists of Baltimore (Rowe, Sheppard, Hofmann, Redelius, Keehn, and Bannon.)
