1 in stock

A very good quality oil painting on canvas of a woman gathering faggotts in a snowy landscape, housed in a gilt-wood frame. Both the picture and frame are in excellent condition having had a light clean. Although unsigned the quality of the painting clearly shows the work is by a highly accomplished artist such as Joseph Farquharson.

Farquharson exhibited at the Royal Academy from 1873 and was elected an Associate in 1900. He is famous for his works portraying sheep and his finest works often include a human figure, men and women of Scotland going about their every day labors are frequently depicted in dramatic landscapes. Nearly all the early works were inspired by his rural surroundings and he went on to make snow scenes his trademark.
