William Drummond Bone RWS ARSA, was a painter in oil and watercolours who attended the Glasgow School of Art from 1928-1931. He won a travelling scholarship which took him to Europe. Bone also taught at GSA between 1935 and 1972. His early interest in art was encouraged by his uncle Sir Muirhead Bone. He is perhaps best known for his wartime watercolours; he also painted landscapes in oil and figurative drawings. He exhibited regularly at The Royal Scottish Academy and the Royal Glasgow Institute.
