Offered for sale is a landscape with sheep on a rocky crag by English artist, Robert Watson, U.K. (1855-1921). The flock is perched on a rocky Scottish Highland hillside with a lake and mountains in the background. The entire painting shows a dusky aura with golden clouds hanging over the entire scene.
The Watson family of painters were known and celebrated for their animal portraiture in the early and late 19th century. Queen Victoria was a huge fan of their charming Scottish Highland scenes and ordered several paintings from them. The better known of this family were Robert and William Watson. We have collected several of their pieces and are constantly on the look out for more.
