This Glaswegian artist, who exhibited landscapes and flower subjects regularly at the Royal Glasgow Institute of the Fine Arts, studied first at the Glasgow School of Art, then at the Académie Julian and Colarossi’s in Paris. He lived in Stirling and was elected associate of the Royal Scottish Academy in 1929. When this picture was shown in 1927 in Glasgow, The Scotsman described it as ‘decoratively arranged’ and the fantail pigeons ‘very convincing in the painting of their soft, translucent plumage’ (26 February 1927, p 14).
