This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in San Francisco, California, Robert Aitken became a noted sculptor who spent most of his career teaching at the National Academy of Design in New York City. He has done numerous portraits, full size and bust, of well known figures, and his work is in many collections and museums including the Smithsonian Institution and the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston.

For his early study, he was a painting pupil of Arthur Mathews and Douglas Tilden at the Mark Hopkins Institute and by the time he was age 18, he had his own studio. In 1897, he studied briefly in Paris, where influences turned him to sculpture.

He taught at the Hopkins Institute until 1904 and was awarded some of the premier sculpture commissions including monuments to the Navy and to President McKinley in Golden Gate Park. In 1904, he returned to Paris for three more years and then settled in New York City where he was a long-time teacher at the National Academy of Design.
