David Waterson (Scottish, 1870 - 1954)
David Waterson was a Scottish artist who worked as a painter, engraver and watercolourist. He was born in Brechin and except for his student years in Edinburgh and two visits to Paris he spent all of his working life in his native town. He exhibited locally as well as at the Walker Art Galleries in Liverpool and the Royal Scottish Academy in Edinburgh. In 1910 he became a full member of the Royal Society of Painter-Etchers and Engravers. Waterson’s work was fairly well-known in his time and his work commercially quite successful. Although his choice of subjects changed little during the course of his career, the style in which he painted changed from fluid and moody to increasingly detailed and even pointillist in appearance.
