John Wilson Carmichael

There are many well known artists associated with NE England, one of whom was John Wilson Carmichael, a landscape & maritime painter.   I first published a Carmichael painting on this blog a year ago, showing what eventually became the terminus of the Tanfield Branch.   Carmichael produced several railway scenes in NE England in the mid 19th century.
