Robert Henderson BlythR.S.A R.S.W Born: 1919
Place of Birth: Glasgow
Bobby Blyth was a close friend of Gillies, who recruited him to the College staff after the War. They also worked together on the east coast of Scotland and their style at times became very similar, both favouring a pen and wash technique. Blyth was a brilliant draughtsman who made distinctive choices on the information he would include. Much of his work on paper has a relationship with English Neo-Romanticism, in particular Paul Nash, Graeme Sutherland and John Minton. Later on, based in Aberdeen, his work became more ‘colour-field’ with the drawing becoming less important.
