Robert Watson was the son of the Victorian landscape painter William Watson (1809-1871), and the brother of fellow artists Charles Watson (1857-1923) and William Watson Jnr (1847-1921). The favourite subject of all three sons was Scottish highland views, especially those featuring native longhorn cattle. Between 1890 and 1920, Robert Watson exhibited in Glasgow and Liverpool, and today his Scottish landscapes can be found in the collections of numerous UK museums and galleries.
