A superb impression of DY Cameron at his best, this etching depicts the north aisle of the cathedral looking to the east.

DY Cameron (1865-1945) was born in Glasgow, Scotland. He studied at the Glasgow School of Art and at the Edinburgh School of Art. He gained international recognition for his print making skill and in 1889 he was elected associate of the Royal Society of Painter-Etchers. He was commissioned by the Canadian Government to paint the war in France. He was knighted in 1924 and became a trustee of the Tate Gallery and Scottish National Gallery.

He is best known for his architectural works and landscapes which frequently contrast areas of intense darkness with bright highlights.
