Description:

Sir David Young Cameron was born in Glasgow and studied both at Glasgow School of Art and in Edinburgh. He began producing etchings in his early twenties and it was with these that he first established himself as an artist, his prints becoming very collectible within his lifetime. During his career as an artist, he is known to have produced over 500 etching plates.

 

Cameron also painted consistently throughout his career, at first a variety of subjects including portraits and architecture but focusing increasingly on the Scottish landscape in the later years of his career. He was knighted in 1924 in recognition of his contribution to British art and art institutions.
