Called Dorothea, but  known as Elsie by her family, Robertson trained at the Royal Academy.   Between 1931 and 1941 she exhibited 11 works at The Royal Academy, mostly still lives and interiors.  Although she lived in Cheyne Row until 1940 from 1941 she is recorded as living at  Garrards Farm, Uffington,  Berks, where she went, presumably, to avoid the London blitz.  This still life very possibly shows a view from one of the farm windows.   At the Royal Academy of 1941 she exhibited Flowers in a window, (no 7).
