A PAINTING by Helensburgh artist Erskine Beveridge, entitled “After Sunset, The Gareloch”, has recently been acquired by the Anderson Trust — and provides a third interpretation of a similar subject.

Biographical details of Erskine Beveridge are scant, and the Anderson Trust would like to find out more about him.

It is known that he exhibited with the Royal Scottish Society of Painters in Watercolour in Edinburgh and that he moved from Glasgow to Helensburgh in 1912 from where a number of his coastal paintings, including “After Sunset, The Gareloch” were painted.

His dates, 1885-1972, suggest it is possible that someone still living in Helensburgh might remember him. If so, please contact the Anderson Trust by emailing the editor of this Heritage Trust website using the Contact Us facility on the home page.

  • More information about the three Gareloch sunset paintings can be found in The Arts section of this website.
