Tour Scotland photograph of a Harbour Storm painting by Joseph Milne, who was born in 1857 in Edinburgh, Scotland. Joe was the elder brother of the painter William Watt Milne, born 1869, died 1949) and the father of John Maclauchlan Milne, born 1886, died 1957. He painted mainly in oils, but occasionally in watercolours, producing land and seascapes which were notable for their strong, bright tones. When working in watercolour, he made free use of bodycolour. Although he lived much of his life in Edinburgh, he worked for a time in Dundee and also in Ayrshire. He exhibited extensively at both the Royal Scottish Academy, from 1877 until 1902 and the Glasgow Institute from 1880 to 1902; he also had 7 works shown in London, England, at the Royal Academy between 1887 and 1908. Early titles often had a genre content. Favourite subjects were the coasts of Scotland and working rivers, particularly The Silvery Tay in Perthshire. Joseph Milne died in Edinburgh in 1911, at the age of 53.
