Glen Coe is a glen in the Highlands of Scotland. It is often considered one of the most spectacular and beautiful places in Scotland, and is a part of the designated National Scenic Area of Ben Nevis and Glen Coe. John Fullwood was a successful landscape painter, etcher and illustrator. He was born in 1854 and studied at Paris and Birmingham. His paintings were displayed at the Royal Academy on 21 occasions and by the Royal Society of British Artists on 99 occasions. From about 1874 to 1900 he was based in Birmingham and lived in Broad Street. He displayed no less than 67 paintings at the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists exhibitions. Around 1900 Fullwood moved to Sussex and worked there for about 10 years. He also had a house at Twickenham and considered the display of his paintings in major London galleries as the most important part of his career.
