Robert Dawson portraitRobert Dawson was born in 1926. Leaving school at 17, Dawson was offered a scholarship to Stoke-on-Trent College of Art, but was persuaded by his mother to join a solicitor’s office. Aged 22, Dawson joined a touring dance band, performing in US Airforce bases in Germany. After studying English and Art at Clarendon College, Nottingham, in 1965, he trained as a primary school teacher.

Dawson, a great collector and lover of art, was also a member of the Staffordshire Society of Artists and had several solo exhibitions. In 1973 and 1974 he won the Holbrook Prize at Nottingham Castle Museum. When Dawson died in 1997, he left a substantial body of work. Among his papers were the drafts for Painters and their Houses.
