(1835–1910).

Painter. McTaggart was born in Kintyre (Strathclyde), in a poor labouring family. He studied in Glasgow and Edinburgh, meeting his expenses by painting portraits, and first exhibited in 1856. He became a regular exhibitor at the Royal Academy and Royal Scottish Academy. He decided early on to concentrate on landscapes, and by the 1870s the sea and boats were the most recurrent themes of his work.
