Thomas Bromley Blacklock (British painter) 1863 - 1903
Born in Kirkcudbright he trained in Edinburgh working mainly in pen and ink and later in oils. His finest works are his landscapes into which he began to introduce children and fairies. 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.
