Footnotes

John Russell, a Scottish painter born in Edinburgh and raised in Aberdeen, painted sporting scenes mainly of fish and fishing scenes. In the 1870s Russell moved with his children to Fochabers, a village located on the east bank of the River Spey. Here he carried out sporting commissions from the Duke of Richmond and Gordon and for visitors to Castle Gordon, a large hunting and fishing estate on the Spey. Lord Lovatt in Inverness also commissioned works by Russell, and he regularly exhibited works at the Royal Scottish Academy.
