James McIntosh Patrick is regarded as one of the greatest Scottish painters of the 20th Century. He was born in Dundee in February 1907, and has enjoyed a long and distinguished career. His father and brother were both architects and it was thus no real surprise when he enrolled in the Glasgow School of Art in 1924.
By 1927 he was selling etchings in London, and he exhibited for the first time at the Royal Academy whilst still studying. He left the Glasgow School of Art in 1928 and had won many prizes for portraiture and landscapes, and the prestigious James McBey Prize for Etching. The success of his paintings during the 1930s established his reputation, with many acquisitions made by public galleries and institutions. Since then his work has been displayed regularly at major exhibitions.
In 1940, James McIntosh Patrick was called up into service with the Camouflage Corps, with whom he spent the war. Upon his return to civilian life, he concentrated on exhibiting in Scotland, especially at the Royal Scottish Academy, and in 1957 became a full Academician.
Although McIntosh Patrick enjoyed an international reputation, he never lost touch with his roots - and is widely regarded as one of the most evocative portrayers of the Scottish landscape of all time.

We partner with the world's top museums and galleries to bring you exclusive prints of the highest quality. Our teams of designers ensure the colours are accurate, papers are well suited and the best frames are suggested.
In the printing room, artworks are printed on state-of-the-art machines with a team of technicians checking colour and quality every step of the way.
After being cut down to size, our team carefully finish any stray edges, check measurements and prepare the prints for mounting and framing.
We have a team of master framers who work with high-quality, responsibly-sourced wood to create our vast range of framing combinations - each frame is bespoke and made to order for every print.
Our selection of hand-finished frames are painted or stained by hand in a variety of colours, and finished with a layer of wax - the end result is a uniquely crafted, beautiful frame that is made to last.
In this workshop everything comes together - the print, the frame and the glass - in a seamless and stream-lined process.
The artwork is carefully mounted in preparation for framing.
Once mounted, the print is ready to be covered by glass or perspex - a delicate procedure but expertly done with not a fingerprint in sight.
After a final, thorough check, the framed print is ready to be carefully packaged up and shipped to the customer.
For those who order their art as canvas prints, the same amount of attention and care goes into the process. Here, the print is being transferred to a wooden frame.
As with the framed prints, our canvases are all hand-finished in the workshop - a labour of love from start to finish.
