Robert Gemmell Hutchison was a Scottish artist whose style belongs to the school of British Impressionism. Hutchison was known for his landscapes, particulary seascapes and maritime scenes. After first training as a seal-engraver, Hutchison was encouraged to take his art more seriously and trained under Scottish painter James Campbell Noble.


Following his studies, he set up his own studio and very quickly became acclaimed as an artist, exhibiting at the Royal Scottish Academy in 1879 and the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in London in 1881 and becoming elected into many prestigious academies such as The Royal Society of British Artists, The Royal Institute of Oil Painters, The Royal Society of Painters in Watercolour and The Royal Scottish Academy.
