Biography

 

Andrew Geddes and his lifelong friend, Sir David Wilkie, were the only leading Scottish artists of the period to produce original etched work. In particular, Andrew Geddes was pioneering in the extent of his combined use of drypoint with etching and he is regarded as one of the key figures to carry this combined technique into the Victorian era. Highly influential as a portrait painter, Andrew Geddes was inspired particularly by the work of the great Flemish masters.
