William Patrick Roberts


Born in 1895 in Hackney, London, William Patrick Roberts RA was a British artist who described his approach as that of an "English Cubist".

Roberts is probably best remembered for the large, complex and colourful compositions that he exhibited annually at the Royal Academy summer exhibition from the 1950s until his death.

Roberts was also part of the Vorticist Movement a London-based modernist art movement formed in 1914 by the writer and artist Wyndham Lewis. The movement was partially inspired by Cubism and their manifesto was published through Blast magazine.
