Lot 232 Details

WILLIAM ALFRED GIBSON (SCOTTISH 1866 - 1931), FISHING BOATS AT A WHARF oil on canvas, signed 41cmx x 51cm Framed Note: William Alfred Gibson was born in Glasgow in 1866 and educated in the city. He spent ten years in the Royal Glasgow Queen's Yeomanry and saw service in the Boer War. After the war he turned to painting, mostly landscapes in oil, being influenced by the Dutch school and Corot, both in subject matter and in the subdued tones of silvery greys, greens and browns which he used. His favourite subjects were river views in Scotland and Holland characterised by powerful leaden grey skies and broken brushwork. Gibson exhibited at the RA, RSA, GI and abroad. He worked in Scotland, England, Holland and France and his work is represented in numerous major public collections around the UK including Glasgow Museums, The Hunterian, Paisley Art Institute, Aberdeen Museums & Galleries, Highland Council, East Ayrshire Council, Highland Council, Perth & Kinross Council and The McLean Museum & Art Gallery
