Bears label of Doic, Wilson & Wheatley, Edinburgh, on reverse
Born in Bradford to a Dunfermline businessman who settled for a time in
Yorkshire, Robert McGregor returned to Scotland at an early age, settling in
Edinburgh. He attended the RSA Life Schools and first exhibited at the RSA in
1873. He was elected a member of the RSA in 1889. His work is exhibited at the
National Gallery of Scotland, Edinburgh City Collections and the public
galleries of Glasgow, Dundee and Paisley. His work closely resembles his
continental contemporaries rather than any Scottish work. This painting is
reminiscent of Bastien-Lepage and Millet whose teachings he seems to have
absorbed.
