John Pettie, 1839 - 1893. Artist about 1863
  • Scottish Art
Robert Scott Lauder's pupils were a tight-knit group whose friendships long survived their student days at Edinburgh’s Trustee’s Academy. Pettie and Chalmers were close friends though their art was quite dissimilar. Pettie made a name for himself as a painter of historical costume dramas. Chalmers, on the other hand, produced landscapes and figure compositions influenced by contemporary Dutch painting.
