Tour Scotland Photograph Painting By Peter Graham

Tour Scotland photograph of a painting by Peter Graham, who was born in Edinburgh, Scotland. He trained at the Trustees' Academy in that city under Robert Scott Lauder. He at first studied figure subjects, then from 1859 he began to explore landscape painting after finding inspiration on holiday in Deeside. His landscape paintings were large scale and captured the grandeur of nature. His response to the landscape was influenced the poetry of Sir Walter Scott. He enjoyed great success at the Royal Scottish Academy and at the Royal Academy, London, England, where he was elected RA in 1881 and Senior RA in 1919. He died in 1921.
