One of the most influential figures among the Glasgow Boys, who rebelled against the pretensions and artificiality of academic painting in the 1880s and 1890s, MacGregor is famous for his ability to transform a simple subject into a vibrant painting. Here he takes a tiny piece of the Scottish coast on a bright day and captures a moment of sunshine and tinted cloud. There is no human presence, no story and no moral; his painter’s eye is directed solely on nature itself. A generation later the Scottish Colourists were to celebrate their homeland with similar verve and concentration.
