Profile: Horatio McCulloch

Horatio McCulloch, R.S.A. (1805-1867) was a celebrated 19th century artist who romanticized the Scottish landscape. It’s been said that “His works are the visual equivalent of what Sir Walter Scott was celebrating in literature – an idealised Scottishness that perhaps never truly existed other than in the imagination.”

Christie’s describes him as follows: “During his lifetime, McCulloch became the best-known and most successful landscape painter, admired chiefly for his large and highly finished loch and landscape views.”
