About this item

Richard Robbins (1927 - 2009), Woodland Path. Signed bottom right hand corner.
Oil on Canvas Richard Robbins was born in Hampstead Garden Surburb, North London. His father was Lord's Robert's chairman of the influential 1963 committee on higher education. He went to King Alfred and University College schools before attending Dauntsey's school in Wiltshire. He loved art and excelled in sport, particularly golf.
After a period in the army with the 21st Field Artillery he went on to read English literature at New College, Oxford. He left university determined to become an artist. Something his father encouraged. Therefore he enrolled at Goldsmiths College and he also studied at the Ruskin and Slade schools of art. For the next six years he taught art at Belmont school during which time he married the sculptor, Wendy Dobbs.
He then moved on to teach at the Camberwell and Hornsey schools of art. Both of which were later incorporated in Middlesex University. From 1984 - 1990 he was the head of fine art. Unlike many of his contemporaries he fundamentally believed in he importance of drawing. In 1993 he was made an honorary professor of fine art and subsequently retired from teaching. In 2004 he was elected an honorary member of the Royal Society of British Artists.
Even while he was teaching, Richard Robbins managed to produce a wide range of paintings, etchings and sculpture. He adored colour and under his hand flowering shrubs would tumble brilliantly out of vast canvases. He was fascinated by the changing patterns of light, weather and seasons. His work is mainly executed on large canvass. It is semi impressionistic, freshly painted and light infused.
