US$4,549.22

About

This lovely Impressionist Colourist oil painting is a fine example of the work of noted Scottish landscape and animal artist George Smith. He was particularly known for his paintings of working horses of which ours has two such horses in the foreground. The scene is a wooded landscape with water, possibly a loch, through trees and dates to circa 1920. The colouring is fantastic and one can clearly see the influences of the Scottish Colourists and the Impressionists. A charming painting that would not look out of place in Kelvingrove museum in Glasgow. Signed lower left. Provenance. Christie's stamp verso. Housed in gilded oak frame, 28 inches by 24 inches and in good condition. George Smith RSA (1870-1934) was a Scottish artist specialising in landscapes and animals, with an emphasis on horses at work. He was born in Mid Calder in West Lothian, just west of Edinburgh. He was educated at George Watsons College then studied art at the Board of Manufacturers in Edinburgh and then in Antwerp under Verlat. In the late 19th century he shared a studio with friend and fellow artist James Christie Prowett (1865-1946) at Beaton’s Mill in Bannockburn near Stirling. Prowett specialised in landscapes. Smith exhibited at the Royal Academy in London and Royal Scottish Academy. In later life he lived at 47 Lauder Road in the Grange area of Edinburgh. He died on 26 November 1934 and is buried with his sister in the Grange Cemetery in southern Edinburgh, close to his home. The grave lies against the south wall towards the south-east corner of the main cemetery.
