Creative expressions inspired by Robert Newton:
"Hi, fans! I am an artist and belong to the North Shore Art League here on Long Island. With all that I've painted, I never painted a pirate! This portrait is for my daughter, Lorraine Crennan, of her favorite pirate actor, Robert Newton, and for everyone on the website to enjoy. Love to all, Jo Cal." (2007)
Submitted by his son, Mervyn Graham, who writes, "Mathew Graham was a 6'7" gentle giant of a man with a great artist's eye. When I was a child I remember him sitting for hours with a nib pen and India ink drawing the most wonderful images. He drew many faces of the actors of his day, this drawing being one of them. Unfortunately, at the time, no one saw the value of these drawings, and they were never framed or preserved in any way, just rolled up and thrown into Mum's sideboard. ... This drawing was completed before I was even born probably around 1949 or '50."
