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.
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.
