Rob, the artist's son, was born in 1927.
Figures resting or sleeping are amongst the subjects that Austin drew consistently - especially his son Rob and daughters Clare and Rachel.  In the domestic family routine which formed the backdrop to his work Austin found an endless source of inspiration.  Drapery was a subject that he was particularly drawn to.  Compositions, which at first appear random, showing the corners of bedrooms and bathrooms are particularly characteristic of his work.  Austin was a keen yachtsman.

Prints and Drawings by Robert Austin RA (1895-1973) was the subject of an  exhibition at the ROYAL ACADEMY OF ARTS in London, ( held in the Tennant Room from 29 May – 25 October 2009).
