William McTaggart is one of the most outstanding and original landscape painters Scotland has produced. A career of consistent development, McTaggart's oeuvre moved from the Pre-Raphaelites to Impressionism through to an acknowledgement of Expressionism. Unlike many of his contemporaries, he did not seek out the more lucrative opportunities available to artists in London, but spent his entire career in Scotland.
