Description Henry Wright Kerr RSA RSW (1857-1936) Exceptional Watercolour Portrait Painting The images, we believe, say it all about this remarkable Edwardian Portrait Painting which was executed by one of Scotland's most famous and respect portrait artist's of the 19th and early 20th Century! 'Henry Wright Kerr' RSA RSW (1857-1936) Henry Kerr was born in Edinburgh. He was a painter in oil and watercolour of portraits and figurative subjects. One of the most prolific Scottish artists, a fine recorder of Scottish character and the Scottish scene and a painter of considerable imagination and sympathy. Best known for his portraits of elderly, characterful gentlemen and for his book illustrations. Early education was in Dundee where he was apprenticed to a manufacturer. Then he took up an appointment in Leith so that he could attend art classes at the Board of Manufacturers and Life School of the RSA. In 1882 he had his first watercolour landscape exhibited at the RSA. In addition to working in Scotland he embarked on a sketching trip to Holland where he came under the influence of the Hague School. Also visited Ireland where, by his portrayal of local character, he was regarded as the natural successor to Erskine Nicol. He visited Connemara in 1888. The outstanding piece depicts an extremely kind-faced lady with greying hair and wearing a clerical or legal style robe. On her neck is a small gold chain with a hanging Cameo. Kerr has captured this ladies facial features in an almost photographic quality! Indeed, the painting is entirely original throughout and it would appear that it has never been removed from the original gilt moulded frame. The piece still even retains the original Edwardian glass protective panel! | Attributes | Condition | Measurements | Circa 1908 Signed 'H.W. Kerr' and dated 1908 upper right corner.
