James Guthrie Art

JAMES GUTHRIE (UK, 1859–1930)

James Guthrie was a Scottish painter, best known in his lifetime for his portraiture, although today more generally regarded as a painter of Scottish Realism. Guthrie became one of the leading painters in the group of artists called the Glasgow Boys. His early works of rural subjects painted with broad square brush strokes show the strong influence of French painters such as Jules Bastien-Lepage. Guthrie was born in Greenock and trained as a lawyer before turning to art. After brief but stimulating periods in London and Paris, he committed himself to paint directly from nature in Scotland. Guthrie also experimented with pastel drawings and established a reputation as a successful portrait painter. He became president of the Royal Scottish Academy in 1902 at the age of 39 and was knighted the following year. He was also a member of the Royal Scottish Society of Painters in Watercolor in Scotland, the Royal Hibernian Society in Dublin, the Societe Nationale des Beaux-Arts in Paris and an honorary member of the Royal Society of British Artists and numerous other British associations as well as of the academy in Munich. His paintings are exhibited at the Royal Scottish Academy and Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, Glasgow.
