Albert Robinson was born in Ontario in 1881 and died in 1956. Self-taught, he found a job related to the arts after high school. In 1903, he decided to improve his artistic knowledge in Europe, more precisely at the Academy Julian located in Paris. Back in Canada, he exhibited in 1906 for the first time. He met a couple of sponsor, the William Davis, who helped him set up in Montreal. At the age of 30, in 1911, he became one of the youngest members of the Royal Canadian Academy. He presented works alongside the Group of Seven in 1920, became friends with A. Y. Jackson and the two traveled together to paint in Europe. In 1933, a heart attack triggered arthritis, which prevented him from pursuing his career as a painter. No longer able to paint after this date, his artworks are therefore rare on the market.
