A superb and scarce mixed media of ink & watercolor on board by Eric Forbes-Robertson of an English lady spooling while being lost in thought. This piece is signed Forbes-Robertson 1915.

Eric Forbes-Robertson (1865–1935) who was a British figure and landscape painter, the brother of two actors (Sir) Johnston Forbes-Robertson and Norman Forbes (-Robertson).

Eric trained at the Académie Julian in Paris in the late 1880s. Amongst the other students at that time were Paul Sérusier, Pierre Bonnard, Édouard Vuillard and Maurice Denis. In August 1890 he traveled to Pont-Aven, Brittany with his friend and fellow student Robert Polhill Bevan. It was there that he met Paul Gauguin and his name is inscribed along with those of Roderic O'Conor and Armand Séguin in Gauguin’s portfolio (now in the Metropolitan Museum of Art).

His artwork is quite scarce and little has been found on his work after 1911. This undocumented piece would be an excellent addition to any collection.

Fresh to the market. 7.5 x 7.5 inches
