Scotland and the entire British Kingdom were under the influence of Queen Victoria. The century had made England a leading economic power. In hardly any other European country was industry as mature as in Victorian England. Art oscillated between the disenchantment and the tradition of English landscape painters. The blossoming English middle class liked to retreat and surround themselves with romantic landscapes. David Murray was born the son of a shoemaker and the traditional values of society did not provide for a move to higher classes. Murray therefore initially took up a trade and began to study art on the side. In his mid-twenties, David left the trading company, which until then had provided his livelihood, and devoted himself entirely to painting.

Landscapes are characteristic for the work of David Murray. Especially his Scottish homeland can be found in many paintings. The river Tay, which flows through the romantic highlands, is a recurring motif of the painter. After a later move to London, Murray also finds the nature of England appealing. The English landscape painters have developed a special way of depicting nature. They are landscapes of watercolours and misty lightness. Gainsborough and Turner brought figures into the often spherical landscapes and made the representation of cultural landscapes socially acceptable. Murray continued along this path. Figures conquer the landscape without destroying the poetic expression. The painting "My love has gone a-sailing" shows a young woman in a rocky coastal landscape looking out to sea. In the distance, sailing ships sail across the sea. With this painting Murray has created a work full of emotion, which is supported by the choice of colours.

David Murray has addressed the needs and wishes of many English people with his works. Despite the economic success of the country, many wished for the harmony and purity of the time before industrialisation to return. Therefore, the artist's success came about quite naturally. Private collectors and the Tate Gallery courted the artist's landscapes. Murray travelled through Europe and sought inspiration in painting. However, Murray did not abandon the individual painting style of the English landscape painters. With success came recognition for the artist. He became a member and later president of the Royal Academy. The highlight of his merits in art is the knighthood. From 1918 until his death in 1933 the artist was allowed to call himself Sir David Murray. © Meisterdrucke
