Robert Gallon (1845-1925)

He was a landscape and coastal painter.

He exhibited from 1868 to 1903 in London, at the Royal Academy (32 works) from 1873 to1903 and at the British Institution (27 pictures). Titles were generally landscapes in England, Wales and Scotland.

Gallon painted in a realistic style similar to Benjamin Williams Leader and George Vicat Cole. A clean fluency of manipulation is a hallmark of Gallonís technique, the brush indicating form with a very smoothly controlled line. The atmosphere of his pictures was most characteristic, with richly coloured skies and filtered warm sunlight touching every corner of the canvas. Many of these fluently detailed pictures have added immediacy from having been painted entirely on the spot.
