"Trout Fishing" by Douglas Adams, Signed Artist Proof, Antique Lithograph, 1893



This is a signed Douglas Adams lithograph "Trout Fishing", published in 1893. Produced in a numbered edition of 200, this lithograph is pencil signed at bottom by the artist. The print depicts depicts a Scottish highlands trout fishing scene. Two fishermen are in the foreground along a small river. Behind them, a stone bridge and the rugged Scottish highlands open up to an expansive sky. The contrast of scale between human and nature captured by Adams communicated the sense of awe many 19th-century travelers felt in this land. Artists romanticized the highlands as one of the last “unspoiled” corners of the British Isles. Douglas Adams (1853-1920) exhibited in the Royal Academy between 1880 and 1894, and also shared a Primrose Hill studio with other artists. He specialized as a landscape and wildfowl painter and very often painted sporting scenes. Many of his paintings are of field sports including hunting, shooting, and fishing, as well as other landscapes painted in the Victorian tradition. Due to the success of his paintings, Adams worked with the well-known publisher Thos. McLean to create limited edition prints of his more popular painted scenes. Condition: Very good condition. Full margins. Signed in bottom left margin "Douglas Adams" in pencil. Presented in a custom-built archival frame.
