Try one of the search engines (I like Google) and just type in the name. Hope this helps :)
Perhaps someone in Art History would be able to help you. I'll move this thread over there and we'll see.
Didn't hear back from you via e-mail about the Georgia location. Let me know if you need anything else.

Do you have any more information on these artists. I am sure there are many R Cunningham's in the world -- perhaps it might help if you could tell us if they are contemporary or not, whether they worked in particular mediums or subject matter, their nationality or post a sample image, if you have one. Anything that might help.
In searching for aritsts, I sometimes use this site to help me:
But .... nothing for this case. :(
Sandra is right, having a more information would really help.... are they American artists?....
Since you first posted this in the oil painting forum, I guess we can assume they are oil painters, but having a time frame to work with would help as well.

I have two books by artist Alfred "Chip" Chadbourn (no 'e'). I think this may be the painter you refer to.
His book "Painting with a Fresh Eye" is one of my favorites. He painted in oils and had a very loose, fresh style. Lots of color. He taught on how to reduce a composition to just three simple values: light, mid-tone, and dark, and eliminate all the in-between value. This made his works look very simple, but effective (IMHO).
I believe he passed away in the late 80's or early 90's. He had an influence on modern artist Charles Sovek. Charles paints in a similar loose manner. I took a workshop with Sovek last Spring and we spent some time discussing Chadbourn's style.
Hope that answers dome of your questions. Oh, you can find some of Chadbourn's books on eBay or Half.com once in a while. Also, you may want to plug in his name using a search engine such as Google, etc.
Hope this helps.
