Artist John White

John White was born in Edinburgh but raised in Melbourne, Australia to which his parents had emigrated in 1856. But he returned to Scotland in 1873 when he entered the Royal Scottish Academy. Thereafter he seemed to move to the south of England with addresses in London, Surrey and Devon. He exhibited widely at such venues as the Royal Academy, Royal Institute of Oil Painters, The Fine Art Society, the Royal Society of British Artists and other venues. He was a member of the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolours (RI) and the Royal Institute of Oil Painters (ROI).

His subjects are quite varied including landscapes, marine, genre and portraits, both in oil and watercolour. An example of his work is in the Exeter Museum. The particular watercolour shown above is interesting because of the subtle use of tone to primarily convey the scene, with very low intensity colours.
