Footnotes

  • David Young Cameron was born in Glasgow, Scotland in 1865. He was trained at the Glasgow and Edinburgh Schools of Art in the 1880s. From 1887-1892 he was a member of the Royal Society of Painter-Etchers. It was during this time that he published a number of sets of etchings (such as "The Clyde Set", "The North Holland Set" and "The North Italian Set"). In general his prints feature areas of great darkness, offset by highlights. Cameron would later become known for his church interiors and barren landscapes of Scotland done in drypoint. He became highly sought after by collectors. He exploited his popularity by producing an unprecedented number of states of his prints, and is believed to hold the record at twenty-eight states in one case. He became an Associate Engraver at the Royal Academy in London in 1911 and became a Royal Academician in 1920. In 1924 he was knighted and made the King's Painter in Scotland in 1933. Cameron also served in the 1920s and ‘30s as a Trustee of both the Tate Gallery and the National Galleries of Scotland.
