Biography
David Thomas Rose was born in Wigtownshire. His early career was spent in the family butchery business, but unhappy in this line of work, he began an apprenticeship with an engineering firm in Inverness. His engineering took him to Glasgow where he discovered the Glasgow Boys and took evening classes at Glasgow School of Art. As a professional civil engineer he was involved in the extension of the Highland Rail line from Connel Bridge to Ballachulish and also worked on Valetta harbour in Malta. He took up etching but had to give this up in 1934 after he lost the use of one eye. He travelled in Italy and France sketching street scenes and local people. He had cartoons published in Punch magazine. After a period living in Yorkshire he retired to Brighton, where he was able to concentrate on his painting full-time.
