Biographical history

"Henry Robertson (Robin) Watt, whose works have been exhibited in the Royal Academy in London, in Paris and in major Canadian galleries, was born in 1896, in Victoria, B.C.
He studied at the Royal Military Academy at Sandhurst and was commissioned in the Green Howard regiment. In World War I he was awarded the Military Cross and Croix de Guerre. He was wounded four times. For a time he served as aide de camp to Sir Arthur Currie, commander of the Canadian Corps.
He resigned from the army in 1920 and began his studies in art at the Slade School in London. He returned to Victoria in 1927. He then went back to England in 1933 and stayed 14 years. In 1948 Mr. Watt returned again to Canada. He died in Montreal in 1964."
