The Artist's Estate; by descent
Note: Celebrated as an art director and production designer, Bernard Robinson’s early career was first as a draughtsman with Warner studios at Teddington, and then with Alexander Korda at London Film at Denham. But it was at Hammer Film Productions, the film company best known for its gothic horror films that he established his formidable reputation.
As well as designing for film, Robinson took a keen interest in painting. As an artist he developed his own distinctive style that drew both on the formal properties of Cubism and the drama of Surrealism. In his subject matter he reflected with both wit and insight many of the darker themes that were such a feature of his day job with Hammer.
