~Charles Robinson~

The Big Book of Fairy Tales 1911 .
Charles Robinson was born in 1870.
His father was an illustrator and his grandfather
engraved the work of illustrators for the burgeoning
magazine and newspaper market of the mid 1800's.
His older brother, Thomas Heath Robinson,
was an illustrator as was William Heath Robinson,
his younger brother. Talent ran deep in the family,
and all three brothers were raised in an atmosphere
that guided them towards their final profession.

Margarets Book.
After a childhood of assimilating his father's
(and his uncle's) craft, and a high school education,
Charles was apprenticed to a printer where he worked
the lithographic stones. For the seven years of his
indenture, he did his best to take art lessons in the
evenings. His studies were sufficient enough to
earn him a probationary berth at the Royal Academy
in 1892, but finances kept him from taking advantage
of it. Apprentices didn't make much money and
the fortunes of his family must have been affected
seriously by the revolutions occurring in the
printing and reproductive fields.

Hoi Anna,

Wat een mooie tekeningen heb je weer gevonden. Ik ken Charles Robinson volgens mij niet, maar de tekeningen komen mij wel bekend voor. Misschien hebben mijn ouders wel iets met tekeningen van hem in de kast staan!

Fijn weekend! groetjes, Madelief
