James Morrison studied drawing and painting at the Glasgow School of Art from 1950–1954 and went onto teach at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art in Dundee. Although many of his earliest works depict the urban environment (around Glasgow), Morrison is best known as a landscape painter, depicting vast empty fields and dramatic skies set against a distant horizon.
This painting was lost in the fire in The Mackintosh Building at The Glasgow School of Art on 23rd May 2014.
