Welcome to Robin Ironside
This site is the official resource for the work of the English Neo-Romantic visionary painter Robin Ironside (1912-1965). Despite having no formal training Ironside was one of the most individual artists working in Britain in the mid-twentieth centrury. A painter who was exhibited along side Paul Nash, Henry Moore and Francis Bacon, Ironside was also a writer, illustrator and designer, Assistant Keeper at the Tate Gallery in London (1937-46) and Assistant Secretary of the Contemporary Art Society (1938-45). English art critic Brian Sewell has described Ironside's work as "neo-classicism brought into neo-romanticism in beautiful alliance".
