Robert Colquhoun

Robert Colquhoun (1914-1962) was a Kilmarnock-born painter, print-maker, and theatre set designer. Colquhoun' earlier work set him within the post-War Neo-Romantic set, which later developed into a more austere Expressionist style influenced by Picasso.

Between 1933 and 1938, he studied at the Glasgow School of Art, where he met fellow Ayrshire-born artist Robert MacBryde, with whom he was involved in a lifelong romantic and professional partnership. Together, MacBryde and Colquhoun were inseparable, and soon became known as 'The Two Roberts'.
