Born in Scotland and trained in Canada and France, British-Canadian artist James Kerr-Lawson (1862-1939) settled in London where he developed a reputation as a portrait painter and muralist. However, the artist also produced a large body of works on paper, ranging from original drawings to lithographs. This talk by Art Cataloguer, Erin Mckellar, highlights our collection of Kerr Lawson's works, centring on the artist’s skilful rendering of architectural views of Rome.
