Notes:

Shared a studio with Harrington Mann, bridging the gap between the Glasgow Boys and Art Nouveau.  Well known for his studies of cattle.  Said by Miles Johnston to have painted mostly at Cannee and Low Boreland, near Kirkcudbright.  His picture Calves is in Dundee Art Gallery.

Some Kirkcudbright artist was said to have written:

 

"There was a wee man named Gauld,
Who painted three calves in a fauld,
He's paintin' the noo a big Ayrshire coo,
He'll maybe pent bulls when he's auld".

 

His Kirkcudbright Harbour is illustrated in Bourne, frontispiece and cover (see bibliography).
