Tom Robertson (1850–1947) East Ayrshire Council Painter, notably of landscapes in France, Morocco and Scotland, especially effective in his moonlight scenes and pictures dependent on artificial light. He was born in Glasgow, studied at the Academy there, at the School of Art and in Paris under Benjamin Constant. On return to Glasgow in the late 1880s he began to show in his studio and in main London and provincial exhibitions. In 1898 painted for several months in Morocco, and on his return showed the resulting pictures at Fine Art Society. The year before, his picture Luna Sorgente had been exhibited in Venice and was bought by the King of Italy for his own collection. In 1904 his picture En Ecosse won an Hon. Mention at Paris Salon, he won a gold medal at the Nantes Exhibition in 1910 and the Musée des Beaux-Arts bought The Morning Star in 1928. Was elected ROI in 1912.

A heart attack in 1922 reduced Robertson’s output, but he continued to show into the 1930s. In 1933 moved from London to live in retirement with his daughter in Eastbourne Sussex. Jeremy Wood Fine Art, Cranleigh, held an exhibition of his work in 1977.
