Robert Hannah,

(3 July 1812 - 5 April 1909)

Born in Creetown, Kirkcudbrightshire, he painted historical and genre subjects similar in style to those of his nearby neighbours, the Faeds of Gatehouse of Fleet. He exhibited in London, Liverpool and Rome, and his paintings were enjoyed by the novelist Charles Dickens, who purchased two. Exhibited 22 works at the Royal Academy between 1842 and 1870, one at the British Institute and two at the SBA 1843. He seems to have been a friend of William Holman Hunt.
