The museum has an important collection of fine art and photography in its collections from the 18th to 20th centuries. It was difficult to choose examples for this gallery so we have featured a diverse selection of images that showcase our collection. Highlights include, an oil on canvas by Sir D Y Cameron depicting October in Knoydart from the 20th century, and a watercolour by renowned Victorian artist and illustrator Jemima Blackburn. Both artists have links to the west Highlands, Cameron was an early member of the museum and prints he prepared from the Strange Plate in 1928 are on display in the Jacobite gallery. Blackburn lived locally at Roshven and was described by contemporaries as one of the most talented illustrators of her day.
