Knox drew and painted several images of mountain goats, including a monumental canvas of a goat falling perpendicular down a cliff. He was also a regular visitor to Arran whose highest peak is of course Goat Fell, which is likely to have led to the subject. A master of the pastel medium Knox’s images of the sea and mountain, with gannets, mists, sunsets and beasts form a significant part of his later output.
