A small collection of 15 Items. Eric Forbes-Robertson was a not-so-well known artist and Cecilia even less so. They were, I believe, siblings, and students at the Royal Academy. There's not much info out there about either. Eric was a close acquaintance of Robert Bevan, and travelled with him whereon they met Gaughin. Comprising: 1. Cloth mockup of The Devil's Pronoun by Frances Forbes Robertson (corners trimmed, glue marks), 2. Graphite illustration by EFR of a man and an angel, ~240mmx330mm. From the Devil's Pronoun, dating it to 1893. Edges heavily worn with loss, one large tear through lower edge of image. 3. Two sheets, unfolded from The Devil's Pronoun, possibly artist's proofs. One sheet has had one of the illustrations excised. 4. Graphite sketch of three figures at the theatre (160mm x 205mm). No signature, probably EFR. 5. Silhouette painting of a shop front (195mm x 165mm). No signature. 6. Pencil sketch of a cottage, dated 1917 but not signed (253mm x 178mm). 7. Pencil sketch of four men (160mm x 200). Unsigned, but probably EFR. 8. Watercolour of female mounted soldier, signed by CFR and dated 1914 (176mm x 230mm). 9. Pencil sketch of three figures in a boat, signed by CFR and dated 1915 (174x227mm) 10. Pencil sketch of a dock, unsigned and unfinished (253x178mm). 11. Watercolour of a farmhouse, neither signed nor dated (254x178mm). 12. Graphite sketch of a crying girl (probably having a paddy), unsigned (185x260mm) Worn to the edges. 13. Pencil sketch of a woman looking bored, signed EFR (174x227mm). 14. Pastel sketch of an antique scene, unsigned (290x230mm). 15. Mounted proof (?) of a nude, by EFR.
