Robert Winchester Fraser (1848-1906)

During his lifetime, Robert Winchester Fraser was the best known of the artist members of his family. He established his style early, and then produced fresh and fluent landscape watercolours throughout his career.

Robert Winchester Fraser was born in Findrach, Aberdeen, Scotland, on 25 July 1848. Following his family’s move to Bedford in 1861, he spent four years at the local grammar school before taking up a position as a clerk in the Fire Assurance Office. Moving to London in 1873, he established himself as an artist in the following year, exhibiting watercolours in London, at both the Society of British Artists (1874-1886) and the Dudley Gallery (1874-1882), and publishing his first illustrations for Good Words. He also exhibited regularly at the Royal Academy (1876-89), and in the provinces.
