From a Tower, Kirkcudbright

Towards the end of the 19th century, Kirkcudbright became home to an artist's colony. Charles Oppenheimer was amongst a number of artists attracted by the inspirational scenery and the company of other creative minds.  Oppenheimer was born in Manchester and studied at the Manchester School of Art.  He travelled and painted in Italy but settled in Kirkcudbright in 1908, remaining there for the rest of his life. He worked in oils and watercolours and painted scences in Dumfriesshire and in Ayrshire.
