Etching, limited edition. Platemark: 375 x 250mm. (14¾ x 10").
Chartered accountant Thomson McLintock opened an office in Glasgow in 1877. His son William achieved membership of the Glasgow Institute of Accountants and Actuaries in 1896, though only after several failures in the final examination, and became a partner in his father's practice in 1901. While most contemporary accounting firms continued to rely heavily on auditing work, the expansion of Thomson McLintock's London office was substantially based on William's reputation both as a tax expert and as an adviser on the amalgamation and reconstruction of companies. Portrait etched by Scotish painter and printmaker William Strang (1859 - 1921), who was one of the original members of the Royal Society of Painter-Etchers, and his work was a part of their first exhibition in 1881.
