Hornel was born in Australia of Scottish parents, brought up and living practically all his life in Kircudbright, Scotland. He studied for three years at art school in Edinburgh, and for two years in Antwerp under Professor Verlat. Leaving in 1885, Hornel was introduced to Glasgow artist, James Guthrie and soon the influence could be seen in Hornel’s work, especially in his adoption of a square brush technique. Hornel’s art quickly developed, and he became interested in rich colour, dense pattern and an emphasis upon the decorative elements of a picture. The 1890s saw Hornel at his most artistically successful, later he also was commercially successful buying Broughton House in the town with the sale of one picture! His work was much in demand and he became a wealthy man. Broughton House and its contents was bequeathed to Kircudbright on his death and is now run by the National Trust as the Hornel Museum.
