Artist biography

View full artist profile
Edward Atkinson Hornel Paintings Edward Atkinson Hornel's father, a Scot, brought him to Scotland from Australia in 1866. He began to study in Edinburgh in 1881, but two years later he left to work in Antwerp for two years with Verlat. He returned to Scotland in 1885. He travelled to Japan in 1893 and 1894, then settled in Kirkcudbright, Scotland. He first exhibited at the Edinburgh Exhibition in 1883, and also showed his work at the Grosvenor Gallery in London in 1890. He was a member of the International Society of Painters and Engravers and an associate member of the New Gallery. Edward Atkinson Hornel paintings are mainly of landscapes and flora, with children. His speciality was executing young girls in idyllic landscapes often surrounded by flora and fauna and occasionally with butterflies. His work is highly collected and he is considered as one of the most important "Glasgow Boys". Hornel's paintings are incredibly unique and identifiable from afar.
