  • Throughout the second half of the 19th C there was a significant dialogue between Scottish and Dutch artists, and the RGI in Glasgow had a particularly progressive exhibitions policy. Willy Sluiter was a noted Dutch painter who had an exhibition at George Davidson's Gallery in Glasgow in October 1913, and he may have met William Alfred Gibson, a landscape painter in the Dutch manner, on his trips to the city. This striking racecourse image could have been inspired by a day trip to Ayr.
