David Gauld (1865-1936) was an important Scottish artist, being one of the great innovators within the Glasgow Boys. Some of his works, such as "St Agnes" and "Music" are seen as precursors of the Art Nouveau movement.
The works of David Gauld are seen as having both a Japanese and Pre-Raphaelite influence upon them.
David Gauld shared the Castlemains Studio in Kirkcudbright with William Stewart MacGeorge and then in later life shared a studio with Harrington Mann at 31 St Vincent Street in Glasgow (1891-1894). During this time much work was created for J & W Guthrie.
David Gauld was elected ARSA in 1918 and became a full member of the Royal Scottish Academy in 1924.
