This early 20th-century oil painting by Scottish artist Allan Ramsay II (1852-1912) depicts a gentle river view near Glamis in Angus, Scotland. As the sun drifts beyond the horizon, passing clouds are illuminated by twists of tinted vermillion. Ramsay loved it here.

Inspired by the independent minds of French painters, Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot and Jules Dupré, Ramsay elevates his views with feathery brushwork and a key eye for composition. His pragmatic approach and adoration for nature’s various moods, earning him a prominent place in the hearts of local citizens.

With its varied topography, Angus is quite mesmerising. Lowlands, mountains, winding streams, idyllic woodlands - an artist’s paradise. This particular view is probably along the banks of the Dean Water close to Glamis Castle.

Held within a beautiful gilded Louis XV revival frame with swept corner ornamentation.
