Yorkshire-born artist Robert Hawcridge came to Otago in the late 1880s. Before coming to New Zealand he had been principal show card designer for a firm in Leeds. In Dunedin he spent around 20 years as designer for printers J. Wilkie and Co. After the death of David Con Hutton in 1910, Hawcridge became Master at the Dunedin School of Art.
