William Darling McKay was born in Gifford in 1844. He studied in Edinburgh before travelling to Holland, where he was greatly influenced by The Hague School. Preferring to work outdoors, they concentrated on the effects of light and atmosphere on the landscape. On his return to Scotland, McKay sought out rural subjects in his native East Lothian, and his paintings have become synonymous with this area. Once exhibited at The Royal Scottish Academy, this oil painting is an impressive example of W.D.McKay's love of the River Tyne.
