Chalmers, George Paul, artist, was born in 1833 at Montrose. Though of humble origin, he yet determined to become an artist, and in 1853 removed to Edinburgh and studied under Scott Lauder. His first hit was made by the Favourite Air produced in 1854, and in 1867 he was made an associate of the Royal Scottish Academy. Among his works, which also included portraits, were Prayer, End of Harvest, and Running Water. He died through injuries in 1878.
