Joseph Crawhall III
|Born||20 August, 1861
|Died||24 May, 1913
Crawhall was the fourth child and second son of Joseph Crawhall II and Margaret Boyd. Crawhall specialised in painting animals and birds. He was born 20 August 1861 at Morpeth, Northumberland. He trained at King's College, London before going to Paris to work with Aimé Morot in 1882.
In the 1880s and 1890s, his work became associated with the Glasgow Boys. He was strongly influenced by the Impressionists, and, like them, his work was rejected by the Establishment, in his case in the form of the Royal Scottish Academy.
Many of his works are viewable in the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum and in the Burrell Collection. He has less works because he is known to have destroyed those he was unhappy with. There is a painting of him by Walter Westley Russell.
