He typically painted scenes of the Austrian Alps and regularly participated in exhibitions, for instance in the Künstlerhaus Vienna. Russ received several tributes.

Robert Russ exhibited five paintings at the World Exhibition of 1873. In the 1880s, numerous museums ordered paintings and Robert Russ had international success. He painted, for instance, landscapes for the Imperial Theatre and the Museum of Natural History. Robert Russ was friends with Emil-Jakob Schindler, Eugen Jettel and Rudolf Ribarz. His early landscape paintings resemble those by Schindler and Jettel.

Russ painted in South Tyrol, Italy and in the Austrian alpine lands. His paintings capture the change of colours that goes along with the different times of the day and seasons of the year. He was called "master of the lighting effect" by his contemporaries.
