The Window Seat by Robert Burns, Edinburgh, 1869 – 1941.

The son of an early landscape photographer, Archibald Burns, Robert was born and brought up in Rock House, Edinburgh.

A talented draughtsman, Burns was awarded a drawing prize at Glasgow
Technical College while studying to be an engineer during the day. In
the evenings, he attended Glasgow School of Art along with Charles
Rennie Mackintosh.

During the
last twenty years of his life, Burns returned with passion to applied
art. Perhaps his most famous designs were for Crawford’s Tea Rooms in
Princes Street, Edinburgh.
