Game of Checkers

Checkers Artist
Robert Gemmell Hutchison

Robert Gemmell Hutchison from 1851 to 1926,
near Edinburgh, Scotland.
  • Educated in Edinburgh and first worked as a seal engraver; however, Robert Hutchison's real love was painting and he believed that this was his true calling so he later studied art at The Board of Manufacturers School of Art, where artist Robert Gemmell Hutchison developed a distinctive broad and vigorous style with a particular interest in genre painting.

  • Robert Hutchison was a figure, landscape and portrait painter, who developed a specialty in depicting the natural innocence of children and the raw beauty of Scottish landscapes and sea shore scenes, influenced by the style of artist William McTaggart.

  • Robert Gemmell Hutchison’s art also showed an influence from the Dutch school, especially the style of artists John and Thomas Faed.

  • Artist Robert Hutchison's paintings depicted a distinctive style between Impressionism and Realism as represented by his broad brushstrokes and soft, muted tones, which also showed a close similarity to the work of some of the Glasgow School of Painters artists.

  • The Draughts/Checkers Players, a quietly distinctive motif, displayed a simple scene of a checkers game between a young boy and his grandfather; the serene mood was contemplative as the young boy was posed making his checker move while the older man reflected on his position on the checkerboard; there is no tension in the air, just the simple enjoyment in the game of checkers between the two players.

  • The background in the Draughts Players was painted in somber, muted colors while the checkers players and checkerboard were highlighted in a strong beam of light; although the setting merely depicted a table, chairs and the two figures, the checkers artist Robert Hutchison created an expressive scene involving the boy and his grandfather.

  • Hutchison was soon recognized by the art fraternity and became one of the most prolific exhibitors of his day as was seen in his exhibitions at the Royal Society of British Artists, the Royal Society of Painters in Watercolor, the Royal Scottish Academy and the Royal Institute of Oil Painters, Grosvenor Gallery, Arlington Gallery, the Royal Academy of London, Royal Society of Art in Birmingham, Manchester City Art Gallery, Walker Art Gallery and the Glasgow Institute of artists.

  • Robert Hutchison was elected to the Royal Scottish Society of Painters in Watercolor in 1895, became an Associate of the Royal Scottish Academy of Edinburgh in 1901, was awarded a medal for his quality artwork in 1903 and elected as a Member of the Society in 1911 and his unique style certainly left a legacy of distinctive works for future generations to enjoy.
