1868 - 1930 signed
Oil on canvas 30 x 25 inches
Framed size 34 ½ x 29 ½ inches
Kilgour was born in Kirkcaldy, Scotland in 1868.
He mostly painted landscapes but also portraits and he did exhibit his work from 1908 to 1909.
While in England it is recorded that he lived at 8 Fitzroy Street, London. Whilst in London he turned to painting a more modern style of portraits, of fashionable women of the day as illustrated by this wonderful stylish work. Although this may be a portrait rather than a genre piece it is a wonderful study of light effects. The figure is lit from the back and the intricacy of observation for the shadows that it creates, is superb.
Kilgour then moved to Canada and settled in Montreal where he died in 1930.
