This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

The following was submitted by James Walker:

Eric Robertson was one of the most innovative and brilliant art  students of his time, often scandalizing conservative Edinburgh society with his frank and sensual depictions of the female nude. He and his wife, Cecile Walton, the talented daugher of the artist E.A. Walton, were the leading members of the Edinburgh Group.  His influences were eclectic and contradictory: Gustave Moreau, and the Pre-Raphaelites, together with the Vorticists, but he also admired the Scottish symbolist painter John Duncan who kept him at arms length on account of his (unjust) reputation as a 'dangerous and subversive immoralist'.

Eric Macbeth Robertson and his wife Cecile Walton are the subject of a biography,  The Two Companions by John Kemplay.
