George Ogilvy Reid (1851-1928)

George Ogilvy Reid was a Scottish historical genre, landscape and portrait painter. Born in Leith he lived his life in Edinburgh becoming an engraver before studying at the Trustees Academy. In 1891 Queen Victoria commissioned Ogilvy Reid to paint a commemorative picture of the christening of one of her grandsons at Balmoral, The Baptism of Prince Maurice of Battenberg - today in the National Galleries of Scotland collection. He exhibited at the Royal Academy, frequently at the Royal Scottish Academy, and at the Royal Glasgow Institute of Fine Arts. Today his works can be seen at the Royal Scottish Academy of Art and Architecture, the National Galleries of Scotland, the Russell-Cotes, Glasgow, Paisley & Dundee museums.
