Sir James Guthrie, 1859 - 1930. Artist and President of the Royal Scottish Academy (Self-portrait) about 1900 - 1910
  • Scottish Art
Guthrie was the leading member of the Glasgow Boys, the group of artists inspired by French realist painting who challenged the conservative and Edinburgh-run Royal Scottish Academy. Like so many rebels, Guthrie in time became a pillar of the establishment himself; an orthodox society portrait painter and the President of the Academy he had earlier challenged.
