Robert Robinson (active 1674-died 1706), Artist; painter-stainer and mezzotinter

Artist associated with 22 portraits
Robert Robinson was a painter and engraver. He became an apprentice-master of some standing and between 1675 and 1699 trained his own son and eight others, including the French portrait painter Charles d'Agar. The little of Robinson's work that survives indicates that he was a vigorous and highly inventive painter.
