Like many Victorian landscape painters, Henry Hadfield Cubley (1858-1934), was drawn to the rugged beauty of Scotland and Wales, many of his works featuring Highland cattle. The impressionistic and romantically atmospheric style is easily recognized, and his work was sought-after in his own time. Today, his paintings can be found in many British provincial museums, including many properties held by the National Trust.
Cubley exhibited at the Royal Academy, the Birmingham Salon, and for many private and public galleries. A number of his works were reproduced as postcards by the firm of Raphael Tuck & Sons, “Art Publishers to Her Majesty the Queen” from 1893.
The beautiful area around Whistlefield, part of which is depicted in this painting, is today part of Scotland’s Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park, still somewhat off the beaten path. This fairly large work is signed on the front in the lower left corner, partially covered by the frame. Cubley also signed it on the back, where he also wrote his title for the painting.
The painting is housed in a gorgeous, elaborate Victorian wood and gesso frame that feels a perfect fit for the piece.
The condition of the painting is excellent. I have had it professionally cleaned. The condition of the impressive frame is excellent as well. I have had it professionally restored and re-gilded.
It measures 38-½ inches wide by 33-¾ inches high, including the frame.
