Ewan Geddes (1866-1936) was born in Blairgowrie. Ewan trained in Edinburgh and had a studio address at 108 George Street. He exhibited regularly at the Royal Scottish Academy from 1891. After his father William Geddes’ early death he returned to Blairgowrie to the family home of Gowanbrae, where he had the use of his father’s old studio. He brought many of his artist friends to the town including Thomas Bromley black lock and William Miller Frazer. Like his father, he would also use family members as models. Ewan worked mainly in watercolour and favoured landscape and rural scenes, often with snow. He produced many works inspired by the area of Muirton of Ardblair. Ewan died in Blairgowrie at the age of 70 and is buried in the family plot in the cemetery.
He is one of a group of artists called ‘The Blairgowrie Boys’.
