Scottish Landscape

This view looks down from the hills in central Scotland where the Highlands meet the Lowlands.  Stirling Castle is just visible a little below the horizon line. Samuel Bough was born in Carlisle and was a self taught artist.  He worked in Manchester as a scene painter and travelled extensively in Europe but he settled in Scotland. Towards the end of his career he focused mainly on coastal and seafaring scenes but his reputation was made, inititally, on his topographical paintings which he worked on out in the open air.
