Peter Wishart ARSA (1846-1932)

Peter Wishart was an interesting and forward looking artist. He lived and worked in Edinburgh painting landscapes and seascapes in oil and watercolour in a broad style which was influenced by the later work of McTaggart. He captured the effect of a windy day on the coast or a storm in the mountains, using rich colours and broad brushstrokes which have Expressionist tendencies
