Biography   Robert Alexander


Robert Alexander was born in Kilwinning, Ayrshire, in southwest Scotland.  He was apprenticed to a Kilmarnock house painter who also painted landscapes, and was compelled to work as a house-painter in order to make a living.  In his spare time, Alexander painted pictures, but was only able to turn to art professionally in his late twenties, when he began painting dogs and horses.

He made his debut at the Royal Scottish Academy in 1868 and showed at the Royal Academy from 1878.  He is said to have "added a new pictorial direction to Scottish animal painting." ("Robert Alexander", University of Glasgow Faculty of Arts, author unknown.)
