Guthrie (1859-1930) was the leader of the Glasgow Boys, the group of artists inspired by French realist painting who defied the conservative and Edinburgh-run Royal Scottish Academy. As do many rebels, Guthrie later became a pillar of the establishment himself as a portrait painter and, aged 39, the President of the Academy he had spent his youth trying to aggravate.
From this appointment he gained his knighthood. He was both a powerful designer and a fine colourist, whose early work inspired by rural Scotland is full of youthful vigour. This includes 1883's 'To Pastures New' from our collection, which art critic Brian Sewell has called 'a masterpiece'.
