Robert Greenham was born in Streatham and trained at the Byam Shaw School of Art and then at the Royal Academy Schools, 1926-29, where he won many prizes. His work became popular during a period when he painted coastal and beach scenes, many of which were set in Suffolk. His landscapes are characterised by strong outlines and areas of flat colour, rather poster-like in style, where aspects of the composition take on an almost abstract life. In the thirties and forties, Greenham made a series of portraits of actresses and film stars, including Greta Garbo and Jessie Matthews, inspired by cinema stills.
