Tour Scotland Photograph Painting By John Knox
Tour Scotland photograph of a loch painting by John Knox, born 1778, died 1845, who was based in Glasgow, Scotland. He was a noted painter of landscapes following the style of Alexander Nasmyth, born 1758, died 1840. Knox is one of the most important landscape painters in Scottish history. His early work was composed in the classical tradition of Claude Lorrain, and later developed a mature style that uniquely captured Scotland’s most famous locations. This important work depicts one such iconic vista; the majestic beauty and sweeping grandeur Loch Katrine in the heart of the Trossachs, the birthplace of Rob Roy MacGregor, and the setting for Sir Walter Scott’s poem The Lady of the Lake. His works include The First Steamboat on the Clyde around 1820 and a South Western View of Ben Lomond in 1834, which can be seen in the Glasgow Art Gallery. He taught another noted landscape painter, Horatio McCulloch, born 1805, died 1867.
