Biography

Muirhead Bone was born in Glasgow, and went from training as an architect to studying art in the city he was born. In 1901 he moved to London and became a member of the New English Art Club. After the start of World War I, Bone was appointed as Britain’s first official War Artist in May, 1916.

Commissioned as an honorary Second Lieutenant, he went to Frace during the Battle of the Somme, and served with Allied forces on the Western Front. He created around one hundred and fifty drawings of war, but once back in England, returned to painting shipyards and battleships. He also helped rally the plight of fellow artists Wiliam Orpen and Wyndham Lewis.

In 1937 he received a knighthood and served once more as an official War Artist in the Second World War. He in died in Oxford, 1953.

Purchase the Book

Glasgow in 1901
by James Hamilton Muir (Author), Muirhead Bone (Illustrator)

Celebrating Glasgow at its height, at the dawn of the 20th century, this idiosyncratic and entertaining book vividly evokes a smoke-hazed and somber city, ringing and thundering with shipbuilding and other industries. Not beautiful, but alive and splendid. The young authors write with humor and passion. From the colorful backdrops of the quays, to the exhausted workers, to the ever-active "city man," the pages are alive with Glasgow scenes and types. The book is liberally illustrated by the pen drawings of Muirhead Bone. An introduction by Perilla Kinchin presents new material on the authors and briefly traces the city's changes in the last century.
