was an Australian Classicist
artist. He was born in Dorchester, England into an editorial family. In 1869, however, the family moved to Australia, where they lived with relatives. Between the years 1903-1914, when he painted few paintings, he worked as a frame maker, which was behind most of his income. In Melbourne, Roberts briefly worked as a photographer. Among his famous works are Shearing of Rams
, inspired by a visit to a sheep farm. He preferred to paint ordinary Australians at work. Many of his paintings were landscapes, such as the Camp at Sirius Cove.
In the 1890s, he married Elizabeth Williamson, with whom he had a son. During World War I, he helped in a hospital in England. In 1928, he was widowed and three years before his death, he married his second wife.
