A Scottish landscape painter, Horatio MacCulloch was born in Glasgow in 1805. He studied in his youth under John Knox, a Glaswegian landscape painter, and after one year of studies was engaged to paint ornamental snuff box lids at Cumnock.

MacCulloch soon left for a job in Edinburgh working for Lizars, the engraver, who employed him to colour book illustrations. After this piecework he was commissioned to paint several large pictures■s in Glasgow■s St George■s Public Hall. MacCulloch■s works form an interesting link between the old world of Scottish landscape painting and the new. From 1829 onwards, he exhibited regularly in the annual Royal Scottish Academy's exhibition, until his death on 24 June 1867. A volume of photographs was published, based on his original landscapes, by Alexander Fraser of Edinburgh in 1872.
