Other examples of original plates by Austin are in the collection of The Royal Academy, Canterbury Museum, Leceister Museum and Art Gallery, The Hunterian in Glasgow and The Ashmolean in Oxford.  

It is generally acknowledged that Austin was one of the greatest exponents of line engraving of the Twentieth century. Campbell Dodgson, keeper of Prints and Drawings at the British Museum, who compiled the standard reference work on Austins' work, compared his work to that of Durer noting that Austin had 'more than a touch of that master in him' (Robert Austin, Twenty-One, 1930 Gallery).
