Pathfinder Pack on Anson [Peter Frederick Anson (1889 - 1975) and the Moray Firth]
The artist and author, Peter Anson, spent much of his life in the North East of Scotland. His father was Admiral Charles Anson, and both sides of his family had close links with the sea. As a result, Anson began sketching scenes of fishing life as a young child. He devoted his life to his interest in the sea, fishing and the Church.
Through his paintings, Anson recorded life and events around the fishing ports of North East Scotland, such as Buckie and Lossiemouth. The paintings are a unique historical record, as well as an artistic one, which had an attractive and distinctive style based on Anson's original architectural training.
