About

A superb large 19th century Scottish Impressionist seascape marine oil painting by Joseph Henderson RSA. The painting is signed and dates to circa 1880. It depicts a stunning seascape with sail ship, possibly around Ayrshire. A beautiful Scottish Impressionist painting which has similarities to his friend William MacTaggart. A fine oil painting with a multi coloured palette and Impressionist impasto that catches the summer's light on the water. One of his best paintings and easy to see why his seascapes rivalled William MacTaggarts. Signed lower right. Provenance. Private purchase. Condition. Oil on canvas, image size is 44 inches by 27 inches and in good condition. Housed in a complementary frame, framed size is 54 inches by 37 inches and in good condition. Joseph Henderson RSW (1832-1908) was a Scottish painter of landscapes, genre, portraits and marine scape. His genre was particularly painting working men such as shepherds, crofters, peddlers, cobblers, fishermen and farm labourers. However he also painted Scottish country and coastal scenery. Henderson studied at the Trustees Academy in Edinburgh and started to work as a portrait painter but having done so for about twenty years he discovered his true vocation which was marine painting. He mastered the painting of the sea in all its different conditions and light. Henderson exhibited his work at the Royal Scottish Academy and at the Royal Glasgow Institute of the Fine Arts. He also exhibited at the Royal Academy in London from 1871 to 1886 and in Suffolk Street Galleries from 1882 to 1884. He was the President of the Glasgow Art Club, in which city he settled in 1852. Henderson married three times: in 1855, Helen Cosh; in 1869, Helen Young of Strathaven (died 1871); and in 1872, Eliza Thomson. Two of his sons John Henderson (1860-1924) and J. Morris Henderson also known as Joseph Morris Henderson RSA (1863-1936) also became painters in their own right. His daughter Marjory Henderson married the well known Scottish painter William McTaggart, who painted in 1894 a wonderful portrait of Joseph Henderson which was presented by the family of Joseph Henderson in 1925 to the Glasgow Museums.
