About

Born in 1871, artist Alfred Edward Borthwick was the second son of William Henry Borthwick, 15th of Crookston. Crookston House in the parish of Stow in the Scottish Borders has been the Borthwick family seat for centuries. Borthwick joined the Scottish Sharpshooters attaining the rank of captain and served in the Boer War and World War I. After leaving the army Borthwick devoted his life to painting, becoming one of Scotland's most prominent twentieth century artists. Known for his portraiture and landscapes, he worked in watercolor, oil and tempera. He was President of the Society of Scottish Artists six times and in 1931, became President of the Royal Scottish Society of Painters. Borthwick studied at the Académie Julian in Paris with French academic painter William-Adolphe Bouguereau and Tony Robert-Fleury, in Antwerp and at the Edinburgh School of Art. He was a member of the Royal Society of British Artists, Royal Society of Painter-Etchers and Engravers, Royal Scottish Academy, Royal Scottish Society of Painters in Watercolors and Royal Scottish Society of Portrait Painters in Watercolors. Borthwick's works are held in the permanent collections of the Scottish National Portrait Gallery, Paisley Museum and Art Galleries and Royal Scottish Academy of Art and Architecture.
