More About The Artist:
Robert Johnston was born, as far as is known, on Rothesay island off the Scottish coast in 1906, the eldest of three brothers. A product of the stormy west coast of Scotland, with a passion for the sea and ships, it would have been natural for Johnston to have associated himself with some kind of seamanship, and in WWII he commanded HMS Louis.
He was a three-times summer exhibitioner at the Royal Academy, a member of the Royal Society of Marine Artists, which he joined in the late 1940s, the Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours from 1954 and the Royal Institute of Oil Painters from 1963.
He is known as a creator of rural idylls and tradesmen depicted as happy in their work for Austin Motor Company, Longbridge car brochures. He also took on many magazine and book illustration commissions, and produced a number of posters for British Railways.
