In the last video blog in our Glasgow Boys series, curator MaryAnne Stevens introduces James Patterson's Moniaive and explains how the painter's 'portable studio' for working outdoors and the use of photography influenced his work.
This is also the last RA Magazine Blog post of the year - we'll back in January with the latest on the RA's forthcoming Modern British Sculpture exhibition, new projects by Royal Academicians and lots more. Merry Christmas!
