George Houston RSA RSW 1869-1947
George Houston's beautiful and tranquil paintings of the lowlands and west coast of Scotland were, according to the Royal Scottish Academy's eulogy on his death, 'amongst the finest landscapes produced in Scotland'.
Contemporary with the Glasgow Boys he developed his own distinctive vision which was '..direct and simple and was interpreted with a technique baffling in its apparent ease.' Houston had a life-long passion for fishing which influenced his choice of painting grounds - Ayrshire, Argyll and Iona were his favorites with occasional forays elsewhere in Scotland.
Always accessible, his paintings were the subject of considerable critical acclaim during his lifetime.
