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