About the Artist: Born Aberdeen and trained as an architect. He practised for many years before settling in Glasgow to work as an artist. Like many Scottish artists of his generation, he was influenced by the Dutch 19th century school and his coastal and marine watercolours reveal a debt to Maris, Weissenbruch and Roelofs in their 'wet' technique and restrained colours. He painted Scottish fishing villages, Dutch coastal scenes and canals, market-places and church interiors. He worked largely in watercolour. Died Glasgow. - from The Dictionary of Scottish Painters 1600-1960, Harris and Halsby.
