I am delighted to offer for sale this large Scottish Landscape Oil Painting superbly painted by the talented renown artist F.E.Jamieson, although signed using one of his pseudonyms P.R.Davis.
Jamieson. F. E. fl 1910-1940
Painter in oil and watercolour of Highland and Coastal scenes. A prolific painter who often signed with pseudonyms such as 'Phil Hips', 'Graham Williams', 'W. Richards' and 'Arnold Pienne'. His oils were most commonly Loch or Highland landscapes. He traveled widely through out the country between the wars selling his paintings. His work was often in a more traditional Victorian style and his pictures were reproduced as postcards by Ajelli and Co of London around 1920.
As anyone who has visited Ardanaiseig will know, that view over Loch Awe of the crannog, Ben Lui, and the surrounding mountains is really something special as demonstrated in this beautiful painting.
However as a 41 km-long body of water, the view from Ardanaiseig only shows off a small, though spectacular, part of the loch.
It is the third largest freshwater loch in Scotland with a surface area of 38.5 square kilometres (14.9 sq mi). It is the longest freshwater loch in Scotland, measuring 41 kilometres (25 mi) from end to end with an average width of 1-kilometre (0.62 mi).
The loch runs approximately south-west to north-east, roughly parallel to the two sea lochs of Loch Etive and Loch Fyne. Via the River Awe and Loch Etive it drains westward from its northern end and thus into the Atlantic Ocean.
At the narrowest section of the loch are North Port (Taychreggan Hotel) and South Port (Portsonachan Hotel). Once used by cattle drovers, a ferry ran between these shores to facilitate crossing to markets beyond.
The Transatlantic Cable, which runs through the village of Kilchrenan, was laid across at this point in 1955.
If you travel to Loch Awe’s northeastern end you’ll find Kilchurn Castle jutting out into the water and sat on top of a rocky peninsula.
The castle was built in the mid-15th century by the first Lord of Glenorchy, Sir Colin Campbell, but fell into disrepair when the Campbells moved to Taymouth Castle.
It was from Loch Awe and surrounding area that Clan Campbell established itself as a powerful family. In 1308, Robert the Bruce defeated the Clan MacDougall at the Battle of the Pass of Brander downstream from the loch.
One of the oldest Argyll clans, the Macarthurs owned lands around Loch Awe which was populated in close proximity with MacGregors, Campbells and Stewarts.
Clan Macarthur artefacts, including the four-poster state bed, are held at Inveraray Castle.[3]
Kilchurn Castle is now cared for by Historic Environment Scotland and is a spectacular place to visit on any sunny afternoon or during an holiday to the region.
Contained within a fine antique style swept gilt frame.
The frame is clean and solid and the painting canvas is all original and in lovely order ready to hang.
