The talented painter William Strang was born in Dumbarton, worked briefly a clerk in the family shipbuilding company before he entered the Slade School of Art in London in 1876. At the Slade he was deeply influenced by the teaching of Alphonse Legros, particularly the etching class which Legros instituted in 1877.
Strang became a masterly and prolific printmaker, largely producing etchings between 1880 and 1900. His etchings include striking portraits of sitters such as Thomas Hardy, Rudyard Kipling and Robert Louis Stevenson.

By the turn of the century, Strang was developing the symbolic themes of his printed work in oil paintings, using rich colours in a style ultimately influenced by Venetian art.
Inspired by Dutch artist Rembrandt, Strang produced a series of self-portraits in a variety of guises.
