- > John MacLauchlan Milne RSA
1885 - 1957
John Maclauchlan Milne followed a career in the footsteps of his father, the artist Joseph Milne. He studied at Edinburgh College of Art and in 1919 went to France for the first time. He was commissioned to go and paint by the Keillers of Dundee. He was to spend long periods of his life there over the next 23 years. Impressionism transformed Milne's palette and the streets of Paris and the French Riviera inspired his paintings that were now shown in bright Mediterranean light. He lived in Cassis while the Scottish Colourists, Cadell and Peploe, were there and was undoubtedly influenced by their vibrant, colourful style.
