PORTRAITURE


ANDREW PATERSON became an internationally famous, multi-award winning portrait photographer, whose services were sought over several decades by many leading political and commercial figures of the day. But like any business, it was ‘bread-and-butter’ work which kept the studio busy, including commissions for portraits of local family groups, weddings, babies, local businessmen, clergy and stage actors. Paterson won in total 23 awards and diplomas, both


national and international, for his work and gave many exhibitions both at home and abroad. In 1935 the Glasgow Daily Record noted that “his portraits...have been regarded as setting new standards of excellence in the expression of character.” He was one of those who helped to elevate portrait photography into an art form equalling that of an oil painting.
