Edward Robertson was the son of the well-known Scottish miniaturist Andrew Robertson (1777-1845) by his first wife. It is presumed that Edward was initially trained as an artist by his father, who was one of the leading portrait miniaturists in London during the first four decades of the nineteenth century. Edward entered the Royal Academy Schools in 1827 and he exhibited his miniatures at the Royal Academy from 1830 to 1837. Although his work is scarce, he is known to have been in Dublin in 1831 to 1832, and exhibited his work at the Royal Hibernian Academy in 1826.
