John Hamilton Glass SSA ARSA, Harvest Time, Perthshire -19th-century watercolour

An original 19th-century watercolour painting, John Hamilton Glass SSA ARSA Harvest Time, Perthshire.

A very attractive large watercolour by Scottish artist John Hamilton Glass SSA ARSA (fl.1890-1925) showing figures gathering corn stooks on the Perthshire coast. The Firth of Tay provides a fine, expansive backdrop to the foreground detail - a landscape which writer Sir Walter Scott once hailed ‘the fairest portion of the northern kingdom’. Queen Victoria was also one of Perthshire’s most celebrated fans.

In watercolour on watercolour board. Bodycolour highlights are used expertly to pick out foreground river, corn stooks and figures. This is one of a pair of watercolours of Perthshire by Hamilton Glass that we have for sale (see stock code JM-973).

Signed lower left. Inscribed verso: 'Harvest Time Perthshire'.
In good condition for its age. Very faint mount burn towards the upper edge, which would be covered by a mount. Some minor age toning and marks verso. Please see photos for detail.
35cm x 51cm.
