Sir David Young Cameron
Scottish etcher and painter Sir David Young Cameron was born in Glasgow in 1865. In the early 1880s, he trained at the Glasgow and Edinburgh Schools of Art and was associated with the Glasgow Boys.
Encouraged by George Stevenson in 1887, Cameron became a leader in the Scottish etching revival. He was a member of the Royal Society of Painters-Etchers from 1887- 1892. His first published prints were the Clyde Set, followed by the London Set and a number of continental sets, including North Holland, North Italian, Paris and Belgian.
His prints depict many architectural subjects such as old city streets, and workshop and church interior views. He was knighted in 1924 and made the King’s Painter in Scotland in 1933.
