    About this item

    William McTaggart, RSA RSW (Scottish, 1835-1910)
    Autumn Leaves Lasswade 

    signed 'W McTaggart' (lower right)
    oil on canvas
    Painted in 1898

    Provenance: Purchased in 1917 by the Glasgow shipbuilder T.G. Brownlie from George Davidson Limited, in Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow.  Thence by direct descent.

    Literature: J.L. Caw, William McTaggart - a Biography and an Appreciation, James Maclehose and Sons, Glasgow, 1917, p. 272.

    This works combines subjects close to his heart, throughout his career he painted subjects of children and Lasswade was where he lived.  The 1870's marked a transition in his painting style his Pre-Raphaelite close-up pictures of children developed into scenes of countryside where the paint surface breaks out into a wild tangle of streaks, splashes and dabs as clearly shown here. Tone was increasingly replaced by a rich awareness of colour, surface and texture.

    Lasswade a village in Midlothian, to the east of Edinburgh, McTaggart moved here from Edinburgh at about the time he painted this work and lived there till his death in 1910.  The receipt we have for the purchase of the work by Brownlie was just 7 years later.
