Title

Glasgow : fifty drawings by Muirhead Bone

Description

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. His drawings on the Western Front are some of his best-known works, reflecting an eye for detail which is also in evidence in his illustrations of industrial scenes in the Clyde shipyards. Bone was knighted in 1937.
