Robert Johnson believes, "that drawing is the most important element in the foundation of realistic art. I have pursued drawing vigorously, not unusually putting in twelve to fourteen hour days working at it," Johnson said. "The Art Students League of New York has been important to me in developing my draftsman skills." Johnson first studied briefly with the late Robert Beverly Hale, an instructor in anatomy and drawing, and later with Michael Burban, his successor at the Art Students League.
