Painting-by-Eleanor-Allen-Moore.jpg
A Bridge in Soochow554 viewsThis painting is by 'Glasgow Girl' Eleanor Allen Robertson, nee Moore, mother of Helensburgh artist and art historian Ailsa Tanner, nee Robertson. The painting was done when Dr Cecil Robertson accepted a post in public health with the Shanghai Municipal Council, and his wife and daughter went with him. Image kindly supplied by the owner of the painting, art collector Jim Smith from Blantyre.
Pier_Print2.jpg
Waverley at Helensburgh614 viewsA print of a painting by Ian Orchardson, who lived in Saltcoats where he taught as an art teacher and died in 1997. He left teaching to concentrate full time on his interest of painting Clyde shipping, including steamers and clippers, as well as the series of six famous 'Doon the Water' stops of Helensburgh Pier, Dunoon Pier, Gourock Pier, Greenock Pier, Rothesay Pier and Wemyss Bay. His paintings give an authentic feel of shipping on the Clyde in times past, and examples of his work are highly sought after.
Portincaple_-_Loch_Long__by_Evelyn_Carslaw.jpg
“Portincaple – Loch Long” by Evelyn Carslaw540 viewsThis work by Evelyn Carslaw (1881–1968), a Glasgow Girl contemporary of Norah Neilson Gray, was donated to the Anderson Trust by her son John Carslaw, himself a painter and a Trustee. The painting invites comparison with an earlier painting in the Collection of the same view by John Reid Murray, and with two paintings acquired in 2009 by a more recent artist who also lived and painted at Portincaple, Violet MacNeish Kay (1914–1971).
Rhu_(Wimbush)1279.jpg
Rhu by Wimbush568 viewsA painting of Rhu Bay in the 1890s by prolific artist Henry M.Wimbush.
Rosneath-House.jpg
Rosneath House536 viewsA print of Rosneath Castle probably from a book written by John M.Leighton around 1840, entitled "Strath Clutha or Beauties of the Clyde". The name J.Fleming is in the bottom left corner and the name Joseph Swan in the bottom right corner. John Fleming was a Greenock artist who lived from 1792-1845. Joseph Swan was a Glasgow engraver and, it would appear, something of an entrepreneur. Image supplied by Stewart Noble.
Seafront-(Tuck)085.jpg
Seafront view535 viewsA Tuck & Sons Oilette postcard of Helensburgh seafront, circa 1907. It was painted by Henry Wimbush, who was most active in painting between 1881 and 1908 when he lived at various addresses in London. Like many of his contemporaries in the Tuck's postcards stable, he toured Britain for inspiration and his coverage was far more comprehensive than many of the other Tuck illustrators — including a number of Clyde scenes. His watercolours were published by Tuck between 1904 and 1908, the majority in the Oilette series.

Seafront vision479 viewsAn imaginative sketch of a busy Helensburgh seafront in the 1870s. Image supplied by Stewart Noble.
Steamer-print018.jpg
Steamer off Helensburgh539 viewsAn antique view of Helensburgh taken from a publication dated between 1889 and 1895. The actual size of the print is 120mm x 75mm. Artist unknown.
Stephen-Conroy-Nude-Study-w.jpg
Nude Study by Stephen Conroy476 viewsNude Study by highly regarded Helensburgh artist Stephen Conroy, is an 18 x 14 inches charcoal drawing on paper which was originally purchased at the Glasgow School of Art Degree Show in 1987, the year it was drawn. Inscribed by the artist on the reverse side, it was offered for sale in October 2011 at £4,750. Stephen, whose paintings can sell for as much as £100,000, was born in Helensburgh in 1964, and brought up in Renton. He lives near Cardross. Image supplied by Ewan Mundy Fine Art, Glasgow.
Still-Life-of-MHP-by-A_N_Paterson-w.jpg
Maggie Hamilton by her husband394 viewsNoted artist Maggie Hamilton (1867-1952) was the daughter of James and Mary Hamilton, of Thornton Lodge, Sinclair Street, Helensburgh, and brother of artist J.Whitelaw Hamilton, one of the first of the 'Glasgow Boys'. In 1897 she married architect and artist Alexander Nisbet Paterson, who painted this still life of her at their family home, Long Croft, in West Rossdhu Drive.

Tarbet_19072513.jpg
Ben Lomond from Tarbet485 viewsA view of Ben Lomond from across Loch Lomond at Tarbet, with cattle in the foreground and a steamer in the distance, circa 1907. The artist's name appears to be P.Wansey, but the signature is hard to make out.
Thorburn-Smith-GIS-cartoon-1.jpg
Babes guddle433 viewsA cartoon by well known Helensburgh artist Gregor Ian Smith showing his eldest son Graham (right) and his friend Sandy Thorburn catching a fish. Image circa 1942 supplied by Sandy Thorburn.
