Biography from Mark Humpal Fine Art:
When Dorland Robinson began showing artistic promise at the age of five, her parents built a studio next to the family home in Jacksonville. In elementary school, she did portraits and sepia pencil sketches of her friends. In 1905 she was greatly impressed by the art at the Lewis and Clark Centennial Exposition in Portland, and upon her return home, she became more serious than ever about becoming an artist.

Her portrait of mayor George Williams was displayed at Portland City Hall. All her entries in the Rogue River Fair in Grants Pass won first prizes. Her doting father, himself an amateur painter decided his talented daughter deserved an eastern art education; she accompanied him on a visit to Philadelphia where she was enrolled at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art in 1910. She also studied privately in that city under Henry Rittenberg.

Her studies continued in Oregon, then in California under Alice Chittenden, where she joined the San Francisco Sketch Club. In 1916 she had 6 works in oil and watercolor on display at the Portland Art Museum. There were plans for a one-person show at the Museum in 1917 that never took place due to her untimely death by suicide in California earlier in 1917.

CES Wood, Portland's main arbiter of taste, declared her an "artistic geniu" and purchased her work for his own collection. A year-long retrospective of her work was held at the Southern Oregon Historical Society from 2003 to 2004. --from Oregon Painters: The First Hundred Years.
