This early 19th-century oil painting by Scottish artist Patrick Nasmyth (1787-1831) depicts a landscape with cottages, trees and horseback rider.

Patrick Nasmyth is one of the unsung heroes of early British landscape painting. A contemporary of John Constable’s, his adoration for the natural world led to a remarkable oeuvre of leafy masterpieces.

He’s often compared with the great Dutch artist, Meindert Hobbema, as his tonal qualities and compositions are more than a little reminiscent. However, he wasn’t a copyist and would study nature diligently first-hand - venturing out in all weathers.

Here we see a typically rugged view with a ramshackle cottage nestled into trees. Many of his works depict his native Scotland.
