James McIntosh Patrick

Birch trees at Ballo

James McIntosh Patrick, was born in Dundee, Scotland. He was the son of an architect and trained at the Glasgow School of Art 1924-28 under Greiffenhagen. A painter in oil and watercolour of predominately landscape, he worked in a clear, detailed style with great attention to the qualities of light. Based in Dundee for many years, he received many awards, including the Guthrie prize, RSA 1935.

He began painting seriously in oils after the market for prints collapsed in the 1920s (he was an accomplished etcher) and first exhibited RA in 1928. The Tate purchased its first Patrick in 1935. His paintings are largely of cultivated landscapes, and in their meticulous attention to detail have been likened to Breughel.

Elected ROI 1949, RSA 1957. Exhibited regularly RA, RSA, RE, RBA and GI and represented in SNGMA, Aberdeen AG, Dundee AG, Glasgow AG, City of Edinburgh Collection, Brodie Castle, Manchester AG, NG of South Africa, NG of South Australia, Sydney AG and the Carnegie Institute (Pittsburgh).
