In Focus: John Knox (1778 - 1845)

  • Tuesday 22 October, 12:45-1:30pm


John Knox was one of Scotland's most significant and original landscape painters. He produced some highly unusual and dramatic panoramas, taken from unusual viewpoints, as well as classicising views of the Clyde valley and other picturesque sites. Knox was also influential on a younger generation of Scottish artists, including Horatio McCulloch. Tricia Allerston, Co-Director of 'Celebrating Scotland's Art': The Scottish National Gallery Project, introduces this important Scottish artist via the two paintings on display in Room 10.
