Artist Bio:

Edwin Thomas Roberts was born in London in the 1840 and died in 1917.  He was the son of Thomas Edward Roberts who also was an artist.  Roberts regularly used children in his artworks and he portrayed them in a charming and idealistic manner.  This style of art proved to be enormously popular with the Victorian public of the day and his work is still widely admired today as it represented the golden age of Victorian art and sentimentality. 

Roberts works are now highly sought after and are increasing in value.
