Robert was a respected art critic, author,lecturer, and award-winning painter.

It is with great sadness that we report that Robert Linsley, a former teacher and guest speaker at Emily Carr University has passed away after a tragic accident. Our thoughts go out to his family at this difficult time. 

Robert was known for his enthusiastic embrace of art (particularly painting), not only in terms of practice, but also history and theory. He will be greatly missed.
