Robert B. Higgins

Robert B. Higgins

R. B. Higgins was born in 1943 in Co. Down and has become one of Northern Ireland's most well known landscape painters. One of Higgins’ most famous commissions was when the Belleek Pottery Company asked him to paint ‘The Four Seasons’ for an edition of collectors plates.

Higgins said, “I get a lot of inspiration from going shooting, While I’m standing there waiting for the birds to break, I’ve got lots of time to take in everything around me, to capture the scene and its colours in my mind’s eye”.

He was also commissioned to mark the 25th anniversary of the Game Fair which was a six foot canvas including all the important figures of the country sports world.
