Joseph Crawhall, 20 August 1861 – 24 May 1913, was the fourth child and second son of Joseph Crawhall II and Margaret Boyd. He was born in Morpeth, Northumberland and trained at King's College London before moving to Paris to work with Aimé Morot in 1882. He was a prolific draughtsman, specialising in woodcut illustrations, lithographs, oils and later watercolours and from the mid 1880s, his work became associated with the Glasgow Boys. He was strongly influenced by the Impressionists, and, like them, his work was rejected by the Establishment, in his case in the form of the Royal Scottish Academy.
