Robert Walker Macbeth (1848-1910), was the son of the portrait painter Norman Macbeth (1821-1888) and brother of the artist Henry Raeburn-Macbeth, ARA (1860–1947). He studied at the Royal Scottish Academy School and first exhibited at the Royal Scottish Academy in 1867. He exhibited at the Dudley Gallery in 1869, moving to London the following year and began to work for The Graphic. Macbeth attended the Royal Academy Schools from 1871 to 1872. He exhibited at the Royal Academy regularly from 1873 until 1904 and also exhibited at the Grosvenor Gallery. He was an etcher, watercolourist and painter of pastoral landscapes, rustic genre scenes and has a unique etching style, very different from Haden or Whistler.
