Albert Dunnington was born in Manchester in 1860 and showed at least one work at Manchester City Gallery. He seemed however to favour the landscapes of Scotland since many of his recorded works feature the mountains and glens, lochs and harbours, the livestock and people north of the border.
He painted at least nine landscapes of Arran, mainly around Brodick and focussing on the Arran Hills. These include: The Peaks of Arran from Corriegills, Loch Fadh near Rothesay with Arran in the Distance, Cattle on the Water’s edge at Brodick, Cattle in Glen Rosa, Goatfell and Brodick Bay, Shetland Cattle on Ben Nuish Isle of Arran, Return to Shore (Brodick Bay 1920) and Glen Rosa Burn.
Dunnington died in 1934.
