ABOUT THE ARTIST:
John Anderson was born in Annan, Dumfrieshire. He went through the Art School system, receiving his final training at the Department of Science and Art, South Kensington, where he trained as an art master. He was appointed Head of the Art School when it opened in its new buildings in 1863. From then until 1906 he was Head Teacher there.
He was a good teacher, such is made clear by a piece on him by two of his former students:
"He led his students in the best way suited to their aims (rather than working them for results that would give him credit with the governors), giving them opportunities in his own studio, or in the fields, which the School of Art could not provide, all without fee or reward ... I well remember the days we spent with Mr. Anderson painting in the country, how he would sit for hours before a large canvas, working joyously, singing to himself. Now and again coming to look over one's shoulder, giving a few words of advice, or taking the palette and brushes to help one out of a little difficulty. The lunch under a tree, followed by a pipe and a chat about pictures, while the sun went over us and put the shadows on the other side ready for the afternoon subjects..."
His view of the Thames in the London Museum shows him to have been strongly influenced in his youth by the Pre-Raphaelites.
