Administrative / Biographical History
The landscape painter Robert Freebairn was articled to Philip Reinagle R.A. and sent his first picture to the Royal Academy from Reinagle's house in 1782. He exhibited landscapes up to 1786 when he appears to have gone to Italy. In 1789 and 1790 he was in Rome and sent views of Roman scenery to the Academy. In 1791 he returned to England. His stay in Italy formed his style and most of his productions were representations of Italian scenery. He occasionally painted views of Welsh and Lancashire scenery. Freebairn died in London on 23 January 1808.
