Robert MacAulay Stevenson
River Landscape - Scottish Glasgow Boys Impressionist Victorian art oil painting

circa 1890



A large impressive original Victorian oil painting which was painted circa 1890 by Glasgow Boy Scottish artist Robert MacAulay Stevenson. This Romantic Scottish view is in fine condition and is framed in its original gallery frame. Influenced by the Barbizon School and the subtle oil paintings of Corot, it has a luminous glow associated with his landscapes. His works like this are visually stunning and verge on lyrical abstraction. He was a very innovative artist and years ahead of his time. Very large and in good condition, this is a lovely example a 19th century Scottish landscape oil. Similar examples of his paintings are on display in Kelvingrove Art Gallery Glasgow. Signed left Robert M Stevenson. Provenance. Scottish estate collection. Remains of old exhibition label verso. Housed in a fine frame which compliments the picture, 56 inches by 46 inches and in good condition. Robert MacAulay Stevenson (1813-1876) was a Scottish painter associated, like EA Hornel, with the later history of the Glasgow Boys. His elder brother was the Liberal politician Sir Daniel Macaulay Stevenson, a Lord Provost of Glasgow and Chancellor of the University of Glasgow. Stevenson was influenced by the work of the Barbizon school, especially Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot. He worked from studios in Glasgow, at Montreuil-sur-Mer in France, at Kirkcudbright, and at Bardowie Loch, Dunbartonshire.
