Edinburgh Art Student

F&I 9: Robina Tittle
The picture shows students in a life class at Edinburgh College of Art somewhere between 1911 and 1916. The one sitting on the floor is Robina Tittle. Robina (born March 1887) was a student at the Trustees Academy School of Art from 1905 before joining the Edinburgh College of Art as one of its first students in October 1908. She was awarded a Minor Travelling Bursary of £15 in the 1911-1912 session and was awarded a diploma in drawing and Painting at the end of the 1913-1914 session. These photographs show a more relaxed side to student and staff life at the College early in the last century.

    I thought you would like to know that the girl sitting on the floor is Robina Tittle. She is my great, great aunt. I gifted her art college photos to the collection at Heriot Watt University. She went on to teach art at Dunoon and Castle Douglas in Scotland and designed war memrials in the form of paintings in both places. There is a tradition in our family that we are related to the poet Robert Browning through the Tittle family from St Kitts.
