Display caption

Jamieson first went to paint in France in 1895 when he won a scholarship from Glasgow School of Art. From at least the beginning of the century he exhibited views of French towns and harbours, which were enlarged from small studies in oil on panel which he painted directly on the spot. In 1910 he was regarded in the pages of 'Studio' magazine as a leading British Impressionist, and after his exhibition at the Carfax Gallery in 1912 these landscapes were popular. He has since been all but forgotten.
