The Scottish watercolourist Arthur Melville was one of the best of his time. Watercolour is one of the oldest painting techniques on earth. In Egypt, artists were already using the technique in the pre-Christian millennium. Watercolours consist of water-soluble binders and fine pigments. The colours are diluted with water and applied to paper with brushes. Since watercolours do not cover, the white background often shimmers through and gives the pictures a special luminosity, which has a light, fragrant effect on the viewer. In Europe the German Albrecht Dürer discovered the fine painting technique for himself. Only in the middle of the 18th century did the watercolour technique finally come to England. William Turner perfected the watercolour technique and passed on his knowledge to young painters. Certainly Turner's paintings were also a great source of inspiration for Arthur Melville in his later works.

Melville was born in a Scottish county. Early on he discovered his passion for art. He took art lessons at a night school. Finally he was educated in art and painting at the RSA School. After his education in London he went out into the wide world. First he stayed in Paris. Here he met Frank Brangwyn. The Welshman worked as painter, illustrator, designer and graphic artist. The two became friends and in the following years they went on a long journey. They wanted to see more of the world. They travelled together through Turkey, Egypt, Iraq and Iran. Later on, further stays in Spain and Italy followed. The painter captured his experiences in many of his paintings. These are still known today for their high colour intensity.
William York MacGregor, a Scottish painter of the late impressionism. Together, the men painted rural scenes from the Glasgow area in the Impressionist and Post-Impressionist styles. The paintings were exhibited in the famous Grosvenor Gallery in London. The group around Arthur Melville received great recognition for this. A Europe-wide interest developed. Further exhibitions outside England followed. Thus the Glasgow Boys established themselves as a brand in the Scottish art scene. Melville married at the end of the 19th century and settled with his wife in Surrey, England. Shortly after another trip to Spain he fell ill with typhoid fever. The disease cost him his life. He died in 1904, at the age of 49. © Meisterdrucke
