Robie's paintings are distinguished by his faithful use of colour, his clarity and the use of perfectly painted accoutrements, including candlesticks, silver bowls and jugs.
Robie exhibited at the Brussels Salon between 1843 and 1875 and was regularly honoured by the Belgian nation. He was made a Chevalier de la Legion d'Honneur and a Commander of the Order of Leopold. He travelled widely, visiting Egypt, Syria, Spain, Italy and England, and he exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1875. Robie wrote a number of travel books about his tours and died in 1910.
