Tour Scotland Photograph Painting By Sir James Guthrie
Tour Scotland photograph of a Portrait Of A Woman and a Dog painting by Sir James Guthrie who was born on 10 June 1859 in Greenock by Glasgow, Scotland. James was the youngest son of the Reverend John Guthrie, a minister of the Evangelical Union church, and Anne Orr. He originally enrolled at Glasgow University to study law, but abandoned this in favour of painting in 1877. Unlike many of his contemporaries he did not study in Paris, being mostly self taught, although he was mentored for a short time by James Drummond in Glasgow and then John Pettie in London, England. He lived most of his life in the Scottish Borders, most notably in Cockburnspath, Berwickshire, where he painted some of his most important works. He was strongly influenced by the French Realists, especially Jules Bastien-Lepage, and was associated with the Glasgow Boys. Guthrie died in the house of his retiral, in Rhu, Dunbartonshire in 1930.
