James Macmaster was a Glasgow landscape and coastal painter; he specialized in fishing scenes with boats in harbour, fishing villages and scenes of unloading the catch. He worked in both oil and watercolour, the latter being painted in a 'wet' Glasgow manner. His work is similar to that of Andrew Black and James McNiven. -- From The Dictionary of Scottish Painters.
