Robert William Watson was born on 9 March 1855 at 33 Marlborough Place, Brighton, Sussex the son of William Watson (1807-1871) part of a family of highland landscape painters. In 1880, he married Alice Ashcroft and they moved to Aughton near Ormskirk and later relocated to the Isle of Mann. Like other members of his family, he specialised in paintings of sheep and cattle in a Highland setting. He exhibited a number of his works in Glasgow and Liverpool. There was much demand for Watson’s work as Scottish scenes were very fashionable in the late nineteenth century, in part due to Queen Victoria’s visits to Balmoral. His works are always highly detailed and capture the raw essence and atmosphere of the Highlands. He died on 31 August 1921 in the Ramsey Cottage Hospital, Ramsey, Isle of Man.
Examples of his works can be found at the Brighton & Hove Museum, Harris Museum, Maidstone Museum, Oldham Gallery, Towneley Hall Art Gallery and Williamson Art Gallery.
