Georges Charles Robin was born in Paris in 1903. He studied at École des Beaux-Arts under the master painter Paul Michel Dupuy, a noted artist whose paintings are to be found in the collection of the Louvre Museum. Robin went on to become a well-known decorative artist, before securing a job as the scenery artist for the Charleville Theatre and the Dinan Casino. Robin travelled widely, finding his favourite painting subjects in the Loire River Valley and in the Dordogne countryside.

Robin was a member of the Salon des Artistes Francais, the Salon des Paysagistes Français, and the Society of Arts, Science and Letters. He was an officer of the Academie des Beaux Arts, director of the Institute of “Instruction Publique”, and a former Professor of the Technical High School. Robin achieved virtually every major award in French painting for his work. Amongst these, the Gold, Silver and Bronze Medals of the Salon Officiel (Grand Palais, Paris), the Medal Hors Concours at the Salon des Artistes Français, and First prize at the Society of French Landscape painters stand out.

Robin was an officer of the Académie des Beaux-Arts, director of the Institute of “Instruction Publique”, and a former Professor of the Technical High School. He was highly lauded, achieving virtually every major award in French painting for his work, among which Hors Concors stands out as one of the highest and most esteemed awards of an artist of the time.

Gladwell & Patterson’s history with this distinguished artist began after the Second World War. Herbert Fuller, the father of Anthony Fuller, the present Director and owner, discovered the landscapes of George Charles Robin in the Paris Salon in 1948 and approached the artist in his studio. The gallery dealt directly with the artist until his death at the age of 100 in 2003 and have since continued to share the legacy of this great artist. The company has both an outstanding library of his work and a highly cultivated knowledge of his practice. Robin’s work is housed in important private and museum collections around the world.
