Thomas Robins Jun.
Robins was born in 1745, the son of the landscape painter, architectural draughtsman and botanical artist of the same name. The work of Robins, Jun. is rare, and until the discovery and sale of the albums from the Bath and West and Southern Countries Society at Sotheby's in 1968, his work had been known only by an album of sketches and five finished drawings in the Collection of Lord Fairhaven, now in the Broughton Collection, Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge.
In 1787 the Bath Society watercolours were advertised thus: 'Mr Robins begs to announce that his pictures of Exotic plants and insects may be seen at his apartments in Chandos Buildings and at Mr Rickards's Print Shop, Broad Street'.
Lots 109 and 110 are similar to those watercolours sold at Christie's London, 9 November 1999, lots 41, 42, 43, 44 and 45.
