Artist's Resale Right ("Droit de Suite"). Artist's Resale Right Regulations 2006 apply to this lot, the buyer agrees to pay us an amount equal to the resale royalty provided for in those Regulations, and we undertake to the buyer to pay such amount to the artist's collection agent.

Lot Essay

Born in London, Robin Rae studied at the Royal College of Art under John Nash, Francis Bacon, Rodrigo Moynihan and Edward Bawden. He exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1946 and by the age of twenty-one had already held two solo exhibitions in London. Unfortunately much of this early work was destroyed.
Having taught in Edinburgh and Liverpool, Rae retired to Bradpole, Bridport in Dorset, continuing to paint but avoiding any strong contact with the art world.
