David Roberts and the Royal Academy, by Ian Fraser


We are pleased to be able to publish this interesting paper by my cousin Ian Fraser. David Roberts was his great great great great grandfather ands his daughter Christine (1821-1872) married Henry Sanford Bicknell (1818-1880) who like his father Ehanan loved collecting art. Ian recovered Roberts’ lost journal of 1851-1860 from among his father’s papers and used it to write this useful dissertation.
