Born in Scarborough, Yorkshire in 1943. Harry Robertson studied at St Martins School of Art and Hornsey College of Art.
“When I was around fourteen years old, I spent a summer day on a hillside in North Wales painting what I could see before me. It was one of the most magical and significant days of my life. After attempting many and varied types of art over the years, I have returned to that simple approach. So the landscape of North Wales has become my main painting subject.
believe that my work fits well within the British tradition of
landscape painting, and many of the painters who have worked in
Wales, such as Wilson and Turner, have always inspired me.
The concept is to honestly depict what I see, with as little artifice as possible. As to execution: after a period of research and planning, I tend to work by building up a painting in successive layers."Website
