Catalogue Note

Cayley Robinson was associated with the Brimingham Group of artists, known for their experimentations in tempera techniques guided by the tenants of William Morris, John Ruskin and the Arts and Crafts movement.  As the present and following works evidence, Robinson was influenced by diverse art sources including the work of Pierre Puvis de Chavannes, Edward Burne-Jones and Fra Angelico. While not directly related to the Pre-Raphaelites or Symbolists, Robinson’s compositions similarly explore psychological states with his quiet figures set in interiors that seem both contemporary and timeless.  Without a specific narrative Robinson’s work allows the viewer to decode the meaning of these indeterminate spaces and the somewhat mysterious characters who inhabit them.
