The William Roberts Society
|'William Roberts RA (18951980) was one of the most distinctive and respected artists of the twentieth century.
He was a founder member of the influential Vorticist group, a powerful recorder of
the front-line battles of the First World War, and a unique observer of the foibles
and activities of Britain at leisure over almost fifty years. The Roberts family fulfilled
an important role in the rich literary and artistic life of the twentieth century.
Their world encompassed almost all the major movements and personalities of the first half of the century, and that period would have been poorer without their presence.'|
Anne Goodchild, former Curator of Art, Sheffield Galleries and Museums Trust
The William Roberts Society is a registered charity that aims to further the appreciation and promotion of William Roberts's work.
