David Foggie

David Simpson Foggie RSA  (31 December 1878 Dundee  – 2 June 1948), was a Scots painter, son of James and Margaret Foggie.

Foggie’s works are found in the National Galleries of Scotland and the Royal Scottish Academy, and many public and private collections.

Foggie started his studies at the Dundee School of Art in 1887, where 10 years later he was appointed Pupil Assistant and joined the Dundee Graphic Arts Association. The following year he left for Belgium, where he studied at the Antwerp Academy. On his return in 1904 he built a house at Lucklawhill overlooking Leuchars and Balmullo in Fife, and in the following year helped found the Tayport Artists Circle. In 1920 he took a post teaching at Ediburgh College of Art. As a teacher of Life Drawing, Foggie had always stressed the importance of accomplished and accurate drawing skills and this quality can be found in many of his own portrait drawings. Following his retirement from teaching at Edinburgh College of Art  he remained active as Secretary of the Royal Scottish Academy.

Although Foggie painted landscapes and townscapes, his main strength was in portrait and figure painting.
