Horatio McCulloch was a British landscape painter. He was born in Glasgow, where he studied for a year with John Knox (1778 - 1845).

He was named after Horatio Nelson.

Horatio McCulloch worked for a time in Cumnock, near Glasgow where he painted pictures on the lids on snuff-boxes.

He later moved to Edinburgh where he became an illustrator. While in Edinburgh he was influenced by the artist John Thomson, 1778 - 1840.

Horatio McCulloch returned to Glasgow in 1827 where he established himself as a landscape artist before returning to Edinburgh in 1838.

Although he lived to the south of the Highlands of Scotland Horatio McCulloch frequently visited the Highlands to paint magnificent landscapes.

He was elected to the Royal Scottish Academy in 1838.

Horatio McCulloch

This painting, entitled Lowland River, is signed H McCulloch but is probably attributed to the 'Circle of McCulloch', a group of apprentices working with the artist, who learned to paint in his style by copying his paintings. McCulloch sometimes signed these paintings.

The painting is presented in an exceptionally large magnificent period frame that equates with the age and importance of the painting.

A larger version of Lowland River painted in 1851 by Horatio McCulloch is owned by the National Gallery for Scotland. It was bequeathed to the gallery by Robert Cox in 1872. Further information on this painting can be found on the BBC website (Lowland River by McCulloch).
