Biography:
McKEWAN, DAVID HALL (1816–1873), water-colour painter, born in London on 16 Feb. 1816, was son of David McKewan, manager to Messrs. Hall of Custom-House Quay, Lower Thames Street, London, and Matilda, his wife. He studied water-colour painting under David Cox the elder [q. v.], and exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1836. McKewan obtained some note as a water-colour painter, especially in drawing rocky scenes and the interiors of old mansions, such as Knole, Haddon Hall, &c. He was elected an associate of the Royal Institute of Painters in Water-colours in 1848, and a full member in 1850; he was a large contributor to the exhibitions of that society. McKewan died on 2 Aug. 1873. He published in 1869 'Lessons on Trees in Water Colours,' and made the drawings for R. P. Leitch's 'Landscape and other Studies in Sepia,' published in 1870.
