Biography Robert Huskisson
Robert Huskisson was born in Nottingham and seems to have been trained as an artist by his father, Henry Huskinson (as the family name had previously been spelled) who was a provincial portrait painter. Robert lived in London, sharing accommodation with his brother Leonard, by the late 1830s.
Although Huskisson remains a shadowy figure, known principally for his delightful fairy subjects, mention should be made of his (if it is in fact by the same Robert Huskisson) oil subject Lord Northwick's Picture Gallery at Thirlstaine House (Yale Center for British Art, New Haven), which is usually dated to c.1846-7 and which shows extraordinary skill in the replication of the contents of the interior.
