Macfarlane, A. (Scottish)
20th Century


Paradykes Farm, Pentland Hills, watercolor, signed l/l,
10" x 14" sight, 18" x 22" frame.

About the Paintings: Excellent condition (poor photographic image). The frame is simple, but effective.

About the Artist: Originally thought to be a work of Alasdair Macfarlane, Glasgow etcher and painter. Without provenance, and in consideration of an opinion from a descendent of the artist, we are offering this watercolor without attribution. Alasdair exhibited at the Glasgow Institute and the Royal Scottish Academy during the 1930s. He also did posters for British Railways, Scottish Division, in the late 40s or early 50s. This watercolor was probably executed within that time frame and bears a resemblance to the panaramic carriage prints the artist did for British Railways. The
signature is unlike the one usually associated with his work, however. but this alone should not disqualify this painting as a work of Alasdair Macfarlane, since most artists altered their signatures. In the interest of clarity, it should be noted that there was at least one other A. Macfarlane working the first half of the 20th Century - Anne MacFarlane. She had at least two works exhibited at the Royal Scottish Academy, so it's certainly possible that this was one of her's. In any event, it's a clean, attractive watercolor - ready for hanging, and priced right.
