THE ANDREW PATERSON STUDIO 1949-1980


HECTOR PATERSON became his fathers apprentice in 1921 but moved to Edinburgh in 1924 to apprentice the photographer Drummond Young while attending the College of Art. In 1937 he married Stella Saunders and during the Second World War enlisted in the RAF. Posted to the Middle East, he was seconded to the Royal New Zealand Air Force and with them served in Burma. After his fathers death in 1948 Hector carried on the business. A painter in his own right he became an art dealer as well, buying and selling pictures by Rembrandt, Raeburn, Sickert and other distinguished painters. He owned two horses and as honorary president of the Highland Riding Club frequently conducted parties of riders on treks all over Inverness-shire. After selling the studio archive to German photographer Andreas von Einsiedel (from which the images in the Andrew Paterson Collection come), he retired and closed the business in 1980. His wife Stella died in 1987, and Hector died six months later in 1988.
