Biography: Johnstone was born in Glamis on 3 May 1849, the sixth of seven children. He was a full member of the Royal Scottish Academy and Royal Society of Watercolourists and demonstrated particular skill with landscapes and portraits. His first exhibition at the RSA was in 1872 and he continued to exhibit regularly. He became an Associate of the RSA in 1883 and a full member in 1895. He also exhibited at the Royal Academy of Arts from 1885 to 1892. He painted mainly in Eskdale and Annandale, though he also painted in France's Fontainebleau forest. He was apparently influenced by the famous artist Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot. He lived at 4 Napier Road in the Merchiston area of Edinburgh. His daughter Dorothy Johnstone was an artist who married David Macbeth Sutherland in 1924. He died in Edinburgh and was buried in Morningside Cemetery, Edinburgh with his wife Jessie Hunter Heron. The distinctive grave holds a high relief sculpture of his head and lies in the southwest section of the cemetery. Source: Wikipedia
