The Trossachs

LL 3741


From its ambitious and formal nature, and the apparently authentic signature and date, this painting can plausibly be identified as one of the works exhibited by Patrick Nasmyth at the Royal Academy in 1822, 'A Waterfall in Glen Shirah [sic] near Inverary, the Seat of the Duke of Argyll'. The artist and his father, Alexander Nasmyth, were closely associated with the area and both exhibited numerous Glen Shira subjects, featuring the numerous waterfalls in the lower end of the glen.
