Dates of existence
Charles Cameron Baillie began attending Evening Classes in Painting and Drawing in 1918, while working as a Scientific Instrument Maker. He continued attending evening classes until 1922, when it seems he ceased work as a scientific instrument maker, and began attending day classes in drawing and painting for the next three years. During his time at the GSA, Baillie lived on New City Road, and Maryhill Road.
After leaving the GSA, Baillie became successful as both a painter and interior designer. Notable exhibitions include 1931 and 1959 at the Royal Scottish Academy, and 1925, 1927, 1930, and 1931 at the Royal Glasgow Institute. He also worked for shipping companies; hired by Cunard in the 1930's, he was responsible for the interiors of the luxury liner Queen Mary. This, in turn, led him to design the interior for Rogano Restaurant in Glasgow, which still boasts its original interior. Baillie is also quite well known for his painting, particularly his strongly stylised portraits, and studies of life on the South Pacific - examples can be seen in the Hunterian Art Gallery, Glasgow.
