George Wright

George Wright was born in Annan in 1851, the second son of John Wright, a nail maker in the town and his wife Margaret.  On leaving school he was apprenticed to John Clemenson a local painter, decorator and sign writer.

George Wright showed early ability as a landscape painter and in spite of his humble origins was able to travel abroad, being inspired by visits to Italy, Constantinople and the Norwegian Fjords.  Although he exhibited at the Royal Glasgow Institute and the Royal Scottish Academy he became frustrated with the RSA and would only exhibit at the Cumberland and Westmoreland Society.

George Wright's work was much appreciated but he was unable to sell for high prices and following a bicycle accident in which he broke his arm he was unable to maintain himself on his art work alone and took up a position as Art Master at Annan Academy.  His most successful work was entitled "Otter Hunt on the Annan".  This work was reproduced in print but sadly the whereabouts of the original is not known.  Any information regarding the work would be much appreciated.

George Wright died in 1916.  His affection for his home town has left posterity with a fine pictorial record of Annan and the surrounding area.
