James Lawton Wingate Biography
He was born in Kelvinhaugh, Glasgow, and initially worked as a commercial clerk, taking drawing lessons in the early morning. Initially he was influenced by Ruskin and the Pre-Raphaelites, and first exhibited in 1864 at the Glasgow Fine Art Institute. The appreciation he received led him to abandon his job and tour Italy in 1867-68 where he created 150 watercolour drawings.
