Robert Paul

From Pindula

Robert Paul was an artist. He came to Zimbabwe in 1927 to work for the BSAP, where it was discovered he could sketch from horseback. On retirement in 1951, he painted landscapes full time, and in 1976, the National Gallery put on an exhibition of 255 of his paintings, many of old buildings and landscapes, primarily Eastern Highlands. Robert Paul's old house is now the Gallery Delta.
