John Falconar Slater, Stormy Landscape

John Falconar Slater, Stormy Landscape

This late 19th-century oil painting by British artist John Falconar Slater (1857-1932) depicts a farmer and horse-drawn plough working into the evening under a turbulent sky. It’s an accomplished piece and there's a Wuthering Heights mood.

Slater is regarded as one of the greatest English impressionists and undoubtedly underrated due to his nationality. His passion for the wild effects of nature seems related to his time in South Africa when a freak storm destroyed his business. This traumatic demonstration of nature’s power over man left an indelible mark. Hence, his preference for painting what he saw without embellishment. Almost as if he spent his life trying to come to terms with it.

Today, many of his works reside in major galleries including the Laing Art Gallery and the National Maritime Museum.
