Duncan MacGregor, painted in 1868. Shown wearing a kilt and hose of Rob Roy tartan, with the MacGregor crest and badge. He has a badger sporran and an unusual design of bonnet with a single row of red dice on the brim.
After returning to Québec, Robert Roy studied art at the University of Quebec in Trois-Rivières, continued to work on developing his technique, and participated in numerous exhibitions. Inspired by people in movement or street scenes, Roy’s paintings are characterised by freedom of movement and a lively expressionist style in which colour and emotion reigns. His desire is to capture the moment in all its complexities by painting what he sees and by generously sharing what he feels with the viewer.
