Alexander JAMIESON 1873 - 1937

Biography

Alexander Jamieson's artistic career was characterised by his landscapes, townscapes, flowers and occasional portraits, executed in oil paint. Born in Glasgow in 1873, he studied painting at the Glasgow School of Art and won a scholarship to Paris in 1898. It was in Paris that he encountered the Impressionists, whose influence perhaps most visible in the hazy, mountainous background of Kursula on the Adriatic.

Jamieson exhibited widely, with his first one-man show at the Carfax Gallery, London in 1912. His work is represented in various collections in Europe, including the Tate Gallery and the Louvre. He was also a member of the Royal Institute of Oil Painters.
