William Roberts (1895 – 1980)
Biography

Roberts was born in Hackney, London and took up an apprenticeship with Sir Joseph Causton Ltd. In 1909 as a poster designer. He attended evening classes at St. Martin’s School of Art in London and later won a scholarship to the Slade School of Art in 1910, whose contemporaries included Mark Gertler, Stanley Spencer and David Bomberg.

Later travels in France and Italy sparked an interest in post-impressionism and Cubism. He was taken up by Wydnham Lewis to form a British alternative to Futurism.

In 1916 he enlisted as a gunner in the Royal Artillery, serving on the Western Front, and the next year as an official War Artist, depicting the horrors of war.
