Dan Robbins, the artist who created the first paint-by-numbers pictures and helped turn those kits into an American sensation during the 1950s, has died yesterday April 2019. He was 93.
“I remembered hearing that Leonardo Da Vinci used numbered background patterns for his students and apprentices, and I decided to try something like that,” Robbins said in 2004. His first creation was a portrait he drew of his boss, which he entered numbers inside the patterns to stand for the grades and shades required.
