Stewart, John Tytler

John Tytler Stewart (1858-1930) initially apprenticed and worked as a decorator, during which time he attended night classes at Glasgow School of Art. After a period in London, where he was on visiting terms with Edward Burne-Jones, William Morris and Walter Crane, and failed attempts to establish his own studio, he joined William Meikle & Sons in 1895, becoming their principal designer. His time with the firm was notable for his work on developing the technique of acid etching with John Stark Melville and his son, Charles Edward Stewart. In 1907 he and his son left to form their own studio, J. T. & C. E. Stewart.
