Painter and teacher, born in Glasgow, who attended Gray’s School of Art, Aberdeen, 1964–8, in the summer of 1968 studying at Hospitalfield House, Arbroath; gained a postgraduate scholarship 1968–9; attending Royal College of Art, 1969–72. Teaching appointments included Oundle School and Crawford School of Art, Cork, Ireland. Robb’s work was difficult to classify, having at times a Pop Art element, indicating a liking for classical Italian art and architecture, and a Surrealist component, as in the landscapes in his first London show at East West, 1997. Group shows included RA and RSA. Public and private collections held his pictures.
