Description
A Fine Scottish Work of Art Victorian Oil Painting Scottish Highlands Sgùrr nan Gillean Isle of Skye. Subject beautiful traditional Scottish Highland mountain landscape views of Sgùrr nan Gillean on Isle Of Skye. Title "Sgùrr nan Gillean Skye". Signed in the bottom corner by the known Associate of the Royal Scottish Academy artist William Beattie-Brown A.R.S.A (1831-1909). Set in a decorative gilt frame which enhances further this painting. Having such impressive dramatic perspective, in the foreground your focus is first drawn to the various sized small and large stone rocks & boulders, sloping grassland vegetation, magnificent views of the mountains. Overhead overcast clouds descending creates a dramatic atmosphere of intrigue and mystery especially with spots of white light coming through the lower clouds, which meets the peaks of Sgùrr nan Gillean (top left), Am Basteir (top middle) and Sgurr a'Bhasteir (top right) from Sligachan. Out of visual sight a stream runs through the valley. The use of colour is exceptional with this artwork. Sgùrr nan Gillean is a peak in the northern part of the Cuillin mountains on the Isle of Skye in Scotland. With a height of 966 metres (3,169 feet), it is one of eleven Munros in the Cuillins. It is the Munro peak nearest to the settlement of Sligachan, and its impressive triangular profile makes it one of the most recognizable of the Cuillins. The most popular route of ascent, known as the Tourist Route, follows a path leading south and west from Sligachan, crossing a burn known as the Allt Dearg Beag (small red burn). The route continues up into a corrie, the Coire Rhiabhach. The ascent of the coire headwall is on loose rock and scree. The continuation up the southeast ridge to the summit is exposed, and calls for scrambling ability. The path up is very narrow so calls for single file when a party ascends. The top is a ridge which must be traversed to reach the final summit, and like the climb, needs some scrambling ability. All sides are very exposed, and extra care is needed if mist descends. The small airy summit platform is surprisingly smooth and flat with outstanding views. Oil on canvas. Title SgùRr Nan Gillean, Skye By William Beattie-Brown R.S.A (1831-1909) Biography of the artist Born in the neighbourhood of Haddington in 1831, Associate of the Royal Scottish Academy Mr. Brown was early brought to Leith and received his education at the High School there. He seems to have exhibited first in 1852, when a picture of his “On the Water of Leith,’ was placed in the Scottish Academy’ Exhibition, and from that date his name was seldom or never absent from the Academy’s catalogues, In 1862 his picture “Sunrise—The Carrier's Cart,’ increased his reputation both amongst the public and in Art circles. During his earlier career his subjects were mostly drawn from the neighbourhood of Edinburgh, or from the border of Neidpath and Roslin, associated with his contributions to counties, as 1s evinced by the names of Tweed and Jed, the Academy’s exhibitions; but, from about 1860 onwards, though he frequently drew his material from the Scottish Lowlands—and, on occasion, from England and the Continent. Mr. Beattie Brown was best known as a painter of Highland scenery, in the delineation of which he struck a note which secured for him a wide popularity amongst his fellow-countrymen. Though he held strongly individual views in regard to the affairs of the Academy, which he never failed to state with courage, his cheerful and buoyant disposition gained him many friends both within and beyond the ranks of his professional brethren. Mr. Beattie Brown was elected an Associate of the Academy in 1871, and attained full honours in 1884.Transcribed from the 1909 Rsa Annual Report. He was a pioneer among the Scottish 'out-of-door' artists, frequently completing his pictures directly from nature a practice which explains his vigour and realism. His diploma picture, dated 1883, is a characteristic highland landscape, 'Coire-na-Faireamh,' now in the Scottish National Gallery, Edinburgh. Representative works by him are in the public galleries at Liverpool, Manchester, Oldham, and Bolton. He was a frequent exhibitor at the Royal Academy, London, and also at Glasgow and other Scottish exhibitions. In his later years he adopted a more glowing scheme of colour than in his earlier work ; but his pictures were always noticeable for their realistic line and tone, and for their technical excellence. William Beattie-Brown's work has been offered at auction multiple times, with realized prices ranging up to 11,590 Usd, depending on the size and medium of the artwork. Since 1998 the record price for this artist at auction is 11,590 Usd for The Soldier'S Leap, Killiecrankie, sold at Lyon & Turnbull Edinburgh in 2006. The artist died in 1909.
