Robert Winchester FRASER (Scotland, 1848 - Gibraltar, 1906)

Biography


A member of an extensive family of landscape watercolourists from Bedfordshire, Robert Winchester Fraser lived for some time in London and Staines before settling in Mildenhall in Suffolk. Fraser exhibited at the Royal Academy between 1876 and 1892, as well as at the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolours and the Royal Scottish Academy, showing mainly watercolour views of sites in the South of England. He was the brother of several landscape artists, including William Fraser Garden, and is often confused with his son, Robert James Winchester Fraser (1872-1930), who signed his work ‘Robert Winter’.
