Robert Smirke (1753 - 1845) was born as the son of an eccentric travelling painter. When he moved to London at the age of 12 in the course of his father's work, he was apprenticed to the carriage painter Bromely. At the age of 20 he was finally accepted for a course of study at the Royal Academy Schools. Later, Smirke was initially a member of the Incorporated Society of Artists, where he was allowed to exhibit his first works. He only became a full member of the Royal Academy in 1791, when he exhibited his works "The Widow" there. For his diploma thesis at the Academy he submitted the work "Don Quixote and Sancho" in 1793.

Smirke was highly respected at the Royal Academy and in 1804 was nominated as Academy Keeper to succeed Joseph Wilton. King George III, however, spoke out against the appointment of Smirke. For he disliked Smirke's openly expressed political views. The king feared that Smirke might pass on his revolutionary views to the young students. So Smirke was passed over in the election and Henry Fuseli got the job. Smirke last exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1813. The painting was entitled "Childhood". In the following years until about 1834 he exhibited some works outside the Academy.

Smirke mainly painted pictures in small sizes, often in monochrome colours. Therefore his works were well suited for copper engraving and were used by some engravers like Joseph Goodyear or William Finden. Many of his pictures had a sentimental or a humorous to satirical character. Besides his various paintings Robert Smirke also tried himself as an illustrator. He made illustrations for the Bible, but also for some international, literary classics, such as "The Arabian Nights" or "Don Quixote", which was translated by his daughter Mary Smirke. Robert Smirke had four sons and at least one daughter. Two of his sons, Robert and Sidney became famous architects and were also members of the Royal Academy. His son Richard became a remarkable antiquarian artist and his son Edward became a lawyer. © Meisterdrucke
