James McIntosh Patrick was born in Dundee, the son of an architect. He studied at Glasgow School of Art, but has continued to live and work close to his native city ever since. His work can be described as possessing a clarity of draughtsmanship and a sure sense of composition. The Angus countryside around Dundee has always been his preferred subject matter, and this painting is no exception. He likes to take his ideas directly from the natural landscape, and then amalgamate various views when back in his studio. This picture entered the Tate Gallery's collection in the year in which it was painted, when the artist was twenty-eight.
