PUBLISHER: Paterson, Montrose, printed by Forrester & Morrison
DATE: Early C19
METHOD: Lithography, with original hand colour
IMAGE SIZE: 8.75 inches by 13 inches image area (22cms by 33cms)
NOTES: DUN HOUSE The Seat of MISS ERSKINE An absolutely charming view of the House of Dun, near Montrose, Scotland, in a sylvan setting with a group of three early C19 figures (and the dog) in the foreground.
This important Scottish country house was designed by William Adam, father of the famous Robert Adam, and completed around 1730. The appearance of the building is essentially unaltered since the time of this print. The building is also well known for its fine internal plasterwork.
It is now ably cared for by the National Trust for Scotland (NTS) and more information about the building can be found on their website.
J S Paterson was the teacher of drawing at Montrose Academy. The print is interesting as an example of how the new found technique of Lithography reached out and enabled many artists to produce their own prints locally, in a way that had not been commonly possible with line engraving. He is listed in Mackenzie, but strangely not in McEwan.
CONDITION: Very good, a very strong impression with good margins all round, no tears, professionally conserved.
