Description:
WALTER SHIRLAW (American, 1838-1909) By the Fire, 1876 Oil on board 18-1/2 x 15-3/4 inches (47.0 x 40.0 cm) Signed and dated lower left: WShirlaw / 76 THE JEAN AND GRAHAM DEVOE WILLIFORD CHARITABLE TRUST While Graham Williford's collection is particularly strong in American expatriate painting, and notably work produced by Americans who sought training in France, it also contains a substantial body of work by American artists who were trained at the Royal Academy in Munich. One of the early figures in the history of the Art Students League in New York--which became something of a bastion of German-trained faculty members in its early years--was Walter Shirlaw. Although born in Paisley, Scotland, he came to the United States at the age of three and fashioned an impressive artistic career for himself here. He became a painter who explored the American West as a special agent to survey the Indian tribes in Montana and Wyoming. He also earned much respect in the East for his teaching and multi-talented abilities as a painter of genre, portraits, murals and as an illustrator, engraver, and etcher. In 1870, he took his earnings from working as a bank note engraver in Chicago and went to Munich until 1877, mastering the Munich style of which he was an early proponent in America. The present work of two men by the fire, with its low-keyed, dark palette, combined with bold, virtuoso brushwork and realist subject matter was one of Shirlaw's Munich-period efforts. Indeed, he painted it the same year he produced one of his most important pictures, Sheep Shearing in the Bavarian Highlands, which he exhibited at the National Academy upon his return to America in 1877; in 1878, it won an Honorable Mention in Paris.
