Tour Scotland Photograph of A Painting by John Phillip

Tour Scotland photograph of a painting by John Phillip, who was born on April 19, 1817 in Aberdeen, Scotland. He was born into a poor family in Aberdeen, but his artistic talent was recognised at an early age. Lord Panmure paid for Phillip to become the student of Thomas Musgrave Joy in London, England, briefly in 1836. His education at the Royal Academy of Arts was also paid for by Panmure. In 1851 he visited Spain, after he was advised to travel to southern Europe for his health. Thereafter he concentrated on Spanish subjects. Phillip died of a stroke while visiting William Powell Frith in Kensington in 1867.
