John Duncan (1866-1945) was born in Dundee and studied at the Dundee School of Art from an early age. He was a great experimenter with techniques and much of his work is in tempera. His subject-matter was rooted in the Celtic Revival and the Pre-Raphaelite tradition, but there is a certain graphical quality which sets it apart from his contemporaries and likens it to Art Nouveau. While the subject matter is thoroughly Celtic Revival, he is generally referred to as a Symbolist.
