Biography Robert Willson
Glass sculptor and watercolor artist Robert William Willson was born May 28, 1912 in Mertzon, Texas. The son of Birdie Alice and James Thomas Willson, the latter a Methodist minister, Willson grew up in Texas and Oklahoma, moving often as his father was transferred from one congregation to the next.
He attended the University of Texas at Austin from 1930 to 1934, majoring in English and graduating with a BA with honors. The University lacked an arts program, so he worked independently during these years, concentrating on painting and drawing. In 1935, he received a Farmer International Fellowship from the University of Texas, and used the funds to study art at the Escuela Universitaria de Bellas Artes in San Miguel, Mexico.
