David FOGGIE (1878-1948) ✿

David Foggie RSA (31 December 1878 Dundee – 2 June 1948), was a Scottish painter, born to parents James and Margaret Foggie. He is best known as a figure and portrait painter, although he also produced a great number of delicate landscapes in water-colour.
Foggie started his studies at the Dundee School of Art in 1887, where 10 years later he was appointed Pupil Assistant and joined the Dundee Graphic Arts Association. The following year he left for Belgium, where he studied at the Antwerp Academy.
On his return in 1904 he built a house at Lucklawhill overlooking Leuchars and Balmullo in Fife, and in the following year helped found the Tayport Artists Circle.
In 1920 he took a post teaching at Edinburgh College of Art. Foggie's works are found in the National Galleries of Scotland, the Royal Scottish Academy, and many public and private collections.

Voglio resistere
al temporale
ancora una volta

Ancora una volta
a giunte mani
voglio crederlo
