Robert Richmond Campbell (1902-72) Australia

Biographical Information

Born in Edinburgh in 1902, Robert Richmond Campbell arrived in Australia in 1916. He began a distinguished career as an art administrator, which tended to overshadow his work as an impressionist watercolourist. Throughout his life he retained a Turneresque vision of land and seascape. In 1962 Campbell organised the exhibition of Australian art for the Tate Gallery in London. He was awarded the OBE the same year. His works are represented in several state and provincial galleries. He died in 1972. Edit or add to this biography
