Peter Grahame (1836 - 1921) was a Scottish artist who trained at the Trustees' Academy in Edinburgh under Robert Scott Lauder. His landscapes were influenced by the paintings of Horatio McCulloch, and the poetry of Sir Walter Scott. He enjoyed great success at the Royal Scottish Academy, and at the Royal Academy, London.
