Weirter, Louis (1873-1932) by Scholes, Robert
Louis Weirter (1873 – 1932) He was born in Edinburgh and studied at the Royal Scottish Academy Schools, and in Paris. He is best known for his pictures of the Great War, but he also did a lot of architectural paintings and ethings. Somewhat confusingly, his paintings bear the signature “Louis Weirter,” while his etchings are signed “Louis Whirter.” He illustrated a number of travel books. He lived in London and at Étaples in France.
