Oil on canvas, 12" by 18" (15" by 21" as framed), the subject a subtly rendered impressionist scene of large trees by a wide river, with just scant human activity present in the form of a few figures in a tiny boat in the middle distance, and a structure on the far shore. Executed in a silvery, cool palette of grays, tans and greens, this is a typical work of the well listed Scottish artist ROBERT RUSSELL MACNEE (1880-1952). Macnee was born in Dunbartonshire, and he studied at the Glasgow School of Art. He exhibited 115 times at the Glasgow Institute of Fine Arts, Manchester City Gallery, Walker Art Gallery (Liverpool), the Royal Hibernian Academy, Royal Scottish Academy, and the Royal Society for Painters and Watercolourists. Macnee is best known for his paintings of Scottish genre and landscapes, and especially for his barnyard poultry. Some paintings have exceeded $10,000 at auction. CONDITION: The painting likely dates to the turn of the century and it shows its age. There is extensive craquelure, grime, several small losses, and a small puncture. Most likely, the painting will need to be relined, cleaned, and touched up, but I think it well worth the investment to restore it. .
