Charles Martin Hardie (Scottish, 1858 - 1916)
Born in East Linton, East Lothian, Hardie entered the family business and worked as a carpenter. However, a family connection with the artist, John Pettie, encouraged him to study at the Trustees' Academy in Edinburgh. Hardie became known for his pictures of Scottish life which often have a strong narrative element. He produced portraits, landscapes and genre scenes as well as historical paintings in both oils and watercolour.
