James McIntosh Patrick, OBE RSA ARE ROI (1907-1998)

James McIntosh Patrick established himself as an accomplished landscape artist early in his career, initially as an etcher and then as a painter. His carefully detailed, highly naturalistic scenes of the Scottish countryside, mainly that around his native Dundee, became highly popular with both collectors and the general public.

James McIntosh Patrick was born at 9 Muirfield Crescent, Dundee, Angus, on 4 February 1907, the youngest of four children of the architect, Andrew Graham Patrick, and his wife, Helen (née Anderson). He began to draw seriously while he was attending the Morgan Academy and, at the age of 14, took up etching. Indeed, his skills were so advanced that, by the time that he arrived at Glasgow School of Art, in 1924,
he was admitted immediately into the second year of the four-year course. Working under Maurice Grieffenhagen and Charles Murray, he proved a very successful student, winning many prizes and, in 1926, beginning to exhibit at the Royal Scottish Academy.

From the outset, Patrick focussed on producing detailed panoramic landscapes.
