`A Farm in the Scottish Lowlands`
Robert Clouston Young R.S.W. (1860-1929)
A fine Impressionist watercolour by Glasgow artist Robert Clouston Young depicting a typical Scottish scene - distant hills and the farm in the middle distance near to a winding stream in the foreground. A beautifully composed painting, the stream draws one in to the red note of the farmhouse roof, and then beyond to the hills and sky above. An excellent sense of distance between the dark stream in the foreground and the distant clouds. I think this is most probably a scene in South East Scotland, maybe Fife. Makes a nice change to see a depiction of a more tranquil, less dramatic Scotland! The painting is double mounted in white with a cream inner mount, and is housed in a traditional gilt swept frame.
Robert Clouston Young (1860-1929) was a Glasgow painter in oils and watercolour. He was elected to the Royal Society of Scottish painters in Watercolour in 1901. He often painted views of the Clyde and coastal scenes. Clouston Young was well known for his `wet in wet` watercolour technique which gave rise to paintings of great subtlety and atmosphere. Later in life he lived in Ardrossan.
The artist exhibited widely - 100 times at the RSW, 75 times at the Glasgow Institute,9 times at the RSA, etc.
