Robert Home (1752-1834), Portrait painter

Sitter in 1 portrait
Artist associated with 18 portraits
Robert Home entered the Royal Academy Schools in 1769. In 1773 he departed for Rome, visiting Paris and Florence en route, and remained there until 1777. Home spent several years in Dublin and London before travelling to India in 1790. He gained permission to accompany the grand army to Bangalore during the Third Anglo-Mysore War, where he sketched captured forts, officers, and the local countryside. Home's contact with the British military proved enduring and lucrative. He sailed for Calcutta in 1795, where he established a thriving portraiture and painting practice.
