Robert Fuller Jackson
(1875 - 1940)
Robert Fuller Jackson was active/lived in Massachusetts, Minnesota. Robert Jackson is known for landscape and Indian figure painting, teaching, architecture, design.
Painter, architect, designer and teacher, Robert Fuller Jackson was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota in 1875. After his early education in Minnesota, he attended Harvard University where he studied fine art and architecture.
Jackson made his home in Cambridge, Massachusetts where he maintained a studio from which he produced watercolors and paintings that he exhibited at the Copley Society and the Boston Art Club. Available records at the St. Augustine Historical Society see Jackson in St. Augustine several times between 1910 and 1915 for the winter season at the Ponce DeLeon Hotel built by Henry Morrison Flagler in 1887.
Much like the work of Frank Shapleigh and William Aiken Walker before him, Jackson's St. Augustine watercolors and paintings accurately record the multicultural populations of the ancient city within the interesting 300 hundred year old architectural environment of Florida's oldest city.
Boston, Massachusetts census records list the death of an R. Jackson, architect and artist, in 1940.
Jackson's work is included in the collections of the Brookline Massachusetts Public Library, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the Cici and Hyatt Brown Museum of Art of the Museum of Arts and Sciences, Daytona Beach, Florida.
