Arguably Dundee's most famous son, McIntosh Patrick made his reputation as a printmaker during the etching revival of the 1920s. After the Depression, when the print market declined, he turned to oil painting, producing meticulous views of the Angus area.

Dundee Art Galleries and Museums have a number of examples of his work, including the famous 'Tay Bridge from my Studio Window' of 1948. In this painting he returns to the bridge theme, painting the newly constructed Tay Road Bridge.
