JAMES WATTERSON HERALD (1859-1914)
James Watterston Herald was born in Forfar, and moved to Edinburgh in 1884. Herald received his only formal art training from Herkomer's School in Bushey (1891). After a period in Croydon in the 1890's, Herald returned to Arbroath, where he died. He often painted town scenes, employing an imaginative colour palette, often unrelated to nature.
