Biography

Scottish artist, considered one of the greatest traditional landscape painters of the 20th century. One of Scotland’s most collectable artists, the most famous painting of his incredible 70-year career is "Tay Bridge From My Studio Window."

The son of an architect, Patrick began to paint shortly after he learned to walk. He attended Morgan Academy and the Glasgow School of Art and won the Newberry Prize. In 1927, he began working as an etcher, but when that market collapsed during the Depression, he turned to working in oils and watercolors. His first exhibit was at the Royal Academy in 1928.

Although he was world traveled and had seen North Africa and Italy during the war, he returned home to Dundee as his choice for a permanent home. He felt it was the finest place in the world, and the surrounding countryside was the inspiration for much of his artwork.

Patrick died in 1998.
