Scottish artist. He is remembered as the first Victorian painter to do children's portraits in period costume. He studied at the Trustee's Academy in Edinburgh under Sir William Allan. He painted chalk portraits, but in 1849 he exhibited his first historical picture "The Last Supper" at the Royal Scottish Academy. His work after that mostly consisted of scenes taken from Shakespeare and King Arthur legends. In late 1850-s he began to paint a series of Arthurian subjects, including "La Morte d'Arthur" and "Sir Lancelot and Queen Guinevere".
