This painting is an example of the work of John Campbell Mitchell (1862–1922), RSA, perhaps Kintyre's most distinguished artist after William McTaggart, who was born a generation before him. Mitchell was born in Campbeltown and worked in the office of C. & D. Mactaggart, lawyers, before his father was persuaded to allow him to pursue his real talents. Mitchell studied art first in Edinburgh and then in Paris and made a successful career for himself as a painter.
