He made his first etching at age 5. He graduated from Vienna schools and attended the Technological College before switching to the Academy for Graphic Art, where he studied under Professor Hans Frank, a painter and graphic artist. Robert inherited the talent of his famous parents. His technique and subject matter are quite similar to those of his father. He signed his early etchings with the pseudonym "F.O. Robert" until he became established as a successful artist in his own right. Only then did he begin signing his etchings with his own name. In 1936 he came to the United States for a year of study at the Academy of Fine Arts, Philadelphia. During that year he made drawings for his American etchings, including the Capitol in Washington, Yale University, Broad Street, New York, and the University of California in Berkeley. He completed the actual etchings after his return to Vienna. In 1938 he was drafted into the army. He was sent to several fronts (Belgium, Holland, France, Russia) as a war reporter. He did many drawings during the war. In 1945 he returned to Vienna. For the next several years industrial commissions comprised most of his work, though he did several of his Viennese and Austrian scenes such as the Vienna Opera House and Kreuzenstein Castle. In 1961 he opened his own printing shop in Vienna, where he printed his own etchings and those of Luigi and Tanna. Following his father's death in 1962 he began signing Luigi's etchings "n.1.Luigi Kasimir"("n.1" being the abbreviation for "Nachless," meaning "from the estate of ..." in German). After his mother's death in 1972 he signed her etchings, "n.1.T.K. Hoernes." In the summers of 1973, 1976, and 1981, Robert returned to the U.S. again and had several successful shows in the Midwest and West. Robert also made several drawings and etchings of California scenes. As a graphic art expert, he served as a consultant to the Austrian Government. He died in 2002. Today, his etchings are held in many private and public collections, including the New York Public Library and many European museums.
