Footnotes

  • John McGhie was born in Lesmahagow near Lanark in Scotland in 1867; the son of a grocer. He showed an early interest in drawing and painting, but was initially apprenticed to an architect before persuading his father to allow him to enrol at the Glasgow School of Art.

    McGhie was married in 1901 to Agnes Burns and settled in Kilconquhar. In 1904 they moved to Pittenweem near Anstruther on the Firth of Forth, a small fishing village which was to furnish McGhie with subject matter throughout his career. He painted the boats and fisher folk, the landscape of East Neuk and its inhabitants, whom he believed were particularly good looking. He exhibited each year in Glasgow and in 1906 moved there, though spending the summers in Pittenweem. He exhibited in Scotland and also at the Royal Academy in London 1891 – 1927. His daughter and granddaughter were both artists.
