Joseph Crawhall was a leading figure in the radical artistic group known as the Glasgow Boys. Although he had little formal training, Crawhall achieved great mastery as a watercolourist, specializing mainging in animal subjects. A technically brilliant and inventive watercolourist, Joseph Crawhall (1861-1913) had the ability to capture an everyday scene with great economy of line; so much so that John Lavery said of him, 'No artist I have known could say more with fewer brushstrokes.' His paintings reflect the fascination and love he had for animals and birds; through patient observations, with superb draughtsmanship and obvious humour, he describes their appearance and character.
