$3,950

About

This is a first edition print of Rough Shooting, signed by the artist, Douglas Adams. The print was published by Thomas McLean and depicts a highlands shooting scene. A group of hunters are huddled together in the foreground of the print, with one standing hunter aimed to shoot a bird. An epic, misty, and expansive landscape extend before them. Douglas Adams (1853-1920) was a London based landscape painter exhibiting at various galleries between 1880 and 1904. He showed many times at the Royal Academy between these dates, as well as at the Society of British Artists, the Grosvenor Gallery, and the New Gallery. Adams specialized in Highland landscapes, often including sporting elements in his paintings. During the late 19th century, a number of his paintings were published as limited editions, mainly by the well-known publisher Thomas McLean. Over his career, Adams executed about a dozen shooting scenes, including a couple of stalking images, and about the same number of angling scenes. These prints were issued in large photogravure format or as smaller sets of three. Condition: Black and white photogravure, as issued. Signed by Douglas Adams. In very good condition. The photogravure is artfully and archivally framed in a custom-built wooden frame.
