Description
This is a charming early circa 1910 oil portrait on canvas in an oval mount depicting William and Constance Mair by Arthur Percy Dixon (act. 1884-1917). This fine example of Edwardian portraiture was almost certainly a commission and probably painted during Dixon’s time in Edinburgh. Here we see the young Constance sitting on a chair and holding open a book while her older brother looks over towards the coloured plates displayed within it. An obituary in The Scotsman from 1917 refers to him as a popular character: “Noone could fail to admire his genial, kindly nature. He had gone in the full fruition of his art.” The portrait is signed/dated and housed within a splendid foliate frame which is probably the original. Medium: Oil on canvas Year of creation: 1910 Provenance: England Sale Records:- Artist’s auction highlight: £14,000 achieved for “An Edinburgh Flower Market” at Christie’s in 1995.
