Roberts, a carpenter’s son, won a scholarship to the Slade School of Art. In the 1910s he and other London-based artists declared they were producing new art for the new century. Their semi-abstract pictures were inspired by modern machinery and industry. After the First World War he developed his own style using clear, tubular forms and strong colours. His favourite subjects were portraits and scenes from everyday life, drawing inspiration from the lives of ordinary Londoners.
