A childhood spent visiting the Smithsonian Institution gave William R. Robertson a lifelong love of history and art that he has applied to the world of miniatures. His furniture, tool boxes, and mechanical instruments reflect his interest in seventeenth- and eighteenth-century American, English, Dutch, and French decorative arts. Robertson enjoys the challenge of making complex, functioning pieces that require hours of historical research and specially made tools.

Robertson is one of more than sixty artists participating in Miniature Masterworks, September 15-17, 2017.
