Artworks by Thomas Bromley Blacklock 1863-1903

The son of the English teacher at Kirkcudbright Academy, Thomas Bromley Blacklock studied in Edinburgh, and worked in East Lothian before returning to Kirkcudbright. He mainly worked in oil but also did pen and ink landscapes.

He always gave an Edinburgh address for Royal Scottish Academy exhibitions. He painted in and around Kirkcudbright and produced many rugged seashore scenes of fine tonal quality. Sadly he suffered from a severe spinal ailment which eventually led to his suicide when at the height of his artistic development.
