A NATIVE of Glasgow, born in 1857, Mr. Dalglish, after leaving school, betook himself for drawing to A. D. Robertson of the Dundas Street life class, and to Robert Greenlees of the School of art in Sauchiehall Street. Here he remained for some time, and took first prize for water-colour painting in the Vere Foster National Competition. Thus encouraged, he began to exhibit pictures in the Edinburgh and Glasgow exhibitions, and his career since then has been that of the artist living in quiet places, transferring to canvas the charm of the old-world harbour and the shore. He has exhibited at most of the galleries in the United Kingdom, including those of the Royal Academy and the Royal Institute.
