Biography from Hardcastle Gallery:
Robert Shaw was a local self-taught artist in Delaware, often described as a modest and unassuming man. Although not well-known today, during his lifetime Shaw and his art were valued by the local public, and his etchings were known nationally.

He drew and painted in meticulous detail the familiar sights of Delaware, and his works were found in homes, schools, and professional offices. Historians today are grateful for Shaw's accurate renderings, turning to them for pictorial evidence of places and buildings which have either changed or are no longer in existence. However, there is little documentation of Shaw's life and work.

An Historical Society of Delaware publication, "Delaware History", Fall/Winter 1990 issue has a descriptive in-depth article "The Etchings of Robert Shaw" by Thomas Beckman. It includes a listing of all of his etchings with their matching remarks, a very helpful tool.
