Biography Robert Pattison
An American Pre-Rafaelite or Naturalist artist, Robert J. Pattison was
a landscape painter influenced in his painting by Thomas Farrer, an
English expatriate artist who in turn was influenced by John Ruskin,
one of the founders in England of the Pre-Rafaelites. These
painters were committed to the study of nature as the basis for art,
and to the return to "pure" art such as that painted in Italy before
Raffaello Sanzio Raphael (1483-1520) injected 'grandeur' into what
Ruskin perceived as heretofore purity in art.
The Americans including Pattison adapted the coloration and detailing
of their English counterparts and focused on still life and landscape,
but stayed away from the figural depiction.
