Description:
Joseph Farquharson, RA (British, 1846-1935) Homeward in the Gloaming signed 'J Farquharson' (lower right) oil on canvas 99 x 156 cm. (39 x 61 7/16 in.) Footnotes PROVENANCE: With The Calton Gallery, Edinburgh, 2001 Farquharson's imposing pictures of sheep in snow, or 'frozen mutton' as they were affectionately termed, are some of the most recognisable works in British art during the first quarter of the 20th C. Farquharson was laird on the family estate at Finzean, Aberdeenshire, and used a makeshift bothy and plaster-cast sheep to assist him in working en plein air in inclement weather. He had a very keen commercial sense, and reworked themes of shepherds and flocks in all weathers, imbuing his scenes with warmth via pink skies or, in this case, the comforting light from the cottage in the gloaming. These proved consistently popular with his patrons.

Joseph Farquharson (1846-1935) Silence of the snow, Bucket Mill on the Feugh, Finzean oil on canvas 60 x 42 in. (152.4 x 106.7 cm.) H.J. Cornish Collection, 1928. Anonymous sale; Leonard Joel Pty Ltd. Auctioneers, Melbourne, 25 August 1955, lot 66. Anonymous sale; Christie's, Glasgow, 26 November 1998, lot 741. F. Irwin, Joseph Farquharson of Finzean, Aberdeen Art Gallery and Museum, 1985, pl. 13, fig. 15 The Scottish Field, December 1998, illustrated, front cover. London, Royal Academy, Summer Exhibition 1907, no. 200, illustrated. p.71. The farm buildings, fields and rivers of Aberdeenshire provided the subject matter for many of Farquharson's paintings. Finzean, the setting of the present painting, was particularly adored by the artist, who lived in this part of Scotland for much of his life. Born the son of a laird, a title which he was later to inherit from his brother in 1918, Farquharson displayed his aptitude for landscape painting from a young age. Presented with his own box of paints at the age of twelve by his father, he was to exhibit his first picture at the Royal Scottish Academy the following year. Farquharson went on to train at the Trustee's Academy in Edinburgh during the 1860s, first studying under Peter Graham R.A. who was to become a close friend of the artist. The influence of Graham on Farquharson is unmistakeable in their shared richness in the handling of paint, and their comparable use of mist and haze to add an atmospheric sense of timing to their work (a technique visible in the background of the present picture). While Farquharson may have dabbled in portrait painting in his youth, it was his depiction of the rural Scottish winter, and his particular attention to the warmth and atmosphere of sunrise and twilight, which were to become his trademarks. Farquharson's love of the Scottish wilderness did not, however, stop him from making a considerable impression in London. Exhibiting over two hundred paintings at the Royal Academy during his lifetime, he was elected Associate of the Royal Academy in 1900, Royal Academician in 1915, and Senior Royal Academician in 1922. Farquharson was additionally praised by his contemporaries. Fellow artist Walter Sickert, wrote of Farquharson's 'extraordinary virtuosity', and praised his lightness of touch in depicting the delicate nuances of natural light as 'the mark of the real painter'. The present picture accentuates this talent, in the dappled reflection of the sunlight that we observe both in the distant trees, as well as on the Feugh itself. In the present work, the uneven clusters of snow, together with the emerging timber of the Bucket Mill outbuildings suggest the melting of the snow, and the shifting of the harsh winter landscape towards the promise of spring. A different view of the same mill, entitled A Winter's Morning exists in the collection of Robert Fleming Holdings Ltd., London. In 1935, Farquharson died in his beloved Finzean. At the age of 89, he was thought to be the oldest living British artist of his time.
