William Kennedy was born in Paisley, where he attended the Paisley School of Art. In the early 1880s he moved to Paris, where he attended the Académie Julian and studied with artists such as Jules Bastien-Lepage, William-Adolphe Bouguereau, Raphaël Collin, Gustave-Claude-Etienne Courtois, and Tony Robert-Fleury. He established a studio in Stirling and painted rural landscapes, as well as boldly-colored depictions of Highland soldiers at Stirling Castle. Kennedy became a prominent member of a group of artists known as the Glasgow Boys. In 1887 he was elected president of a society formed by the group's members. He moved to Berkshire in the 1890s, and to Tangier in 1912, for health reasons.
