S Robertson Rodgers (1916-1981) painted as part of the large War Artists' Advisory Committee (WAAC) during World War II. The WAAC bought his work. His key work, Bombers Escorted by Fighters on a Daylight Sweep over the Channel, is owned by the Ministry of Defence.He exhibited at two major painting societies in the Federation of British Artists (FBA): the Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours (RI), and Royal Institute of Oil Painters (ROI).
The gallery found little is known of what became of the artist's reputation and professional status after the war. It found that he kept on painting and exhibiting into the 1960s and beyond. Primarily a landscape painter, he wrote a significant article entitled "Painting the Open Landscape" during the 1960s.
