Early 1900's

Edmund Crawford, who was born in Cowden, near Dalkeith, studied at the Trustees Academy, concentrating upon depicting the Scottish landscape, coastal and shipping scenes, and harbours. He was influenced by John (‘Jock’) Wilson, with whom he studied at the Trustees Academy, and also the Tonal school of Dutch seventeenth century painters, following a visit to Holland in 1831. His seascapes were influenced by Van de Velde and his landscapes by Hobbema. He exhibited regularly at the RSA and is represented in the National Gallery of Scotland.
