Offering this beautiful landscape by noted artist Walter J. Watson. This oil painting on canvas measures 13" x 19" and is enclosed in its original hand carved frame. Reminiscent of an E.C Slater frame showcasing the effects of the chisel marks, the frame alone is a treasure in its own right. The condition of this painting is very good with no holes, tears, and repairs.
Walter Watson was a landscape painter, born in Somerville, Cheshire (1879). He studied at the Wallasey School of Art and in London. Watson loved Britain and traveled extensively in search of his subjects. He was particularly drawn to the dramatic highlands of Scotland.
During his career, Watson exhibited widely between 1910 and 1937 at the major London Galleries as well as in the provinces and abroad. He was elected an Associate of the Royal Cambrian Academy in 1922 where he showed no fewer than 32 paintings. Watson's soft palette, careful execution and restful compositions are representative of his much sought after landscapes. His work is sought after worldwide especially as he produced comparatively few pictures. Watson exhibited at the Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool and the Royal Cambrian Academy.
