Born in Partick, Muirhead Bone trained in an architect's office while studying at evening classes at the Glasgow School of Art. His early sketches in various books and periodicals first drew attention to his artistic talent. He took up etching in 1898, and became ‘master of the etching needle’. Glasgow's architecture provided the inspiration for many of his works, published in ‘Etchings of Glasgow’ and ‘Glasgow in 1901’. He moved to London in 1902 and further enhanced his reputation with etchings of buildings in England. A visit to Italy in 1910 also resulted in some fine examples of his art. Bone was an official war artist in both world wars, in France and with the Royal Navy in the First World War, and again with the Admiralty, 1940–1943.
