Lot Essay

'I suppose I have painted more Scottish landscapes than anything else; and I never paint anything with greater pleasure. We once spent a glorious autumn in the Highlands, six weeks of perfect painting weather from the start of October to mid-November. The trees, rowan, beech, birch and oak, became more and more autumnal till all was a blaze of vermilion and gold' (see Sir W. Russell Flint, More than Shadows, London, 1943, p. 28).
