Robertson was born into a wealthy family, who encouraged him in his artistic pursuits. He met Walter Crane and Sir Edward Coley Burne-Jones among others and trained with Albert Moore. He not only established himself as a painter but also designed sets and costumes for numerous stage productions in New York and London. He knew many of the leading lights in the art and theatre world including Ellen Terry, Sarah Bernhardt, Henry Irving and Jane Morris. One of Robertson\’\’\’\’s great loves was for the work of Blake, and it was his well-informed, critical judgment on the artist that is widely credited with the great revival of Blake around his 1927 centenary. Robertson died in 1948, bequeathing a number of his collected Blake works to the Tate, the V and the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge. A selection of watercolours were sold in These Rooms on 22 July 1949.

Lot Notes
Born in London and educated at Eton, Robertson studied art at
South Kensington under Albert Moore. Although his wealthy
background meant he did not have to earn a living as an artist, he
painted throughout his life, working as an illustrator and costume
designer, he also wrote several books and plays. His reminiscences,
Time Was, London, 1931, contain an interesting and graphic account
of the personalities of the 1890s and the rather sad bohemianism of
Moore's last years. He was a much loved friend of Burne-Jones and a
passionate supporter of the Pre-Raphaelites.
