From the Castle to the Calton Hill

Artist: Paterson, James, RSA · 1854-1932

The work is cited in Paterson's Obituary notice in the RSA Annual Report for 1932; "His Diploma picture the ‘Nor’ Loch” is an excellent example of his romantic point of view in landscape. “From the Castle to the Calton Hill,” a recent purchase by the Thorburn Ross Memorial Fund, is again of Edinburgh, and the collection of the Modern Arts Association contains yet another of these works based on its wonderful topography, “ Kdinburgh’s Playground.”
