Lot Essay

The present work was painted during the period when Wingate painted some of his most accomplished works, living at Muthill, near Crieff. Later on in his career he moved away from figure painting towards pure landscape such as this. His late artistic training, during his mid-twenties at the Royal Scottish Academy, hampered his drawing and the construction of pictures and instead he focused on the texture and tone of the painting to create the desired effect. As Caw noted 'delicate play of brushwork and subtle modulation of tone and colour...are the qualities which give charm to his work'. An artist noted for his ability to imbue landscapes with a vivid sense of the emotion and sentiment of nature, Caw argues that it was in his sunsets he achieved this most successfully.
