Sir William Jardine (Born 1800 – Died 1874) was the eldest son of Sir Alexander Jardine. He was born in Edinburgh and was educated at Edinburgh High School, after which he became a medical student at the University of Edinburgh. His art has influenced and continues to influence the print market. The fluid strokes of color are a true testimony to his sensitivity to nature as shown in his art where he captured the essence of individual elements and translated them into a magical whole in the form of realistic images. He was a key figure in the history of science of the Victorian era. Jardine owned a museum, the finest private museum dealing with natural history. He also owned a library in Britain and made natural history widely available. He used forty small, affordable volumes on mammals, birds, insects and fish and his Library. The joy of producing art is what motivated him. For the artist, the actual process and/or experience of producing a piece of art was more fulfilling than the result. Framed Sir William Jardine art are hanging on many walls around the world. During his time at the university, his interests expanded very rapidly to include natural history and geology. He married Lizars Jane Home in 1820, and just a year later, he inherited the family home near Lockerbie, a 5,000 acre estate and also his title. He also managed to develop particular areas of expertise in the ornithology and ichthyology fields. Jardine pursued his interest in the natural world using an independent means.
