Product Description
E. A. Walton Notecard Folio
A member of the renowned group of artists known as the Glasgow Boys, Edward Arthur Walton (Scottish, 1860–1922) was primarily interested in landscape painting but was a gifted portraitist as well. Inspired by developments in the landscape genre in France, Walton and the Glasgow Boys sought to explore the natural effects of light in the open air. Though Walton studied at the Glasgow School of Art, he gained most of his experience painting with his friends in rural eastern Scotland.

Walton’s skillful brushwork creates a remarkable sense of immediacy and realism in these two depictions of children in nature. A Daydream was Walton’s first large-scale painting and his first treatment of an outdoor theme in which figures dominate the composition. It reflects the influence of the French painters Millet and Bastien-Lepage in its subject and restrained tones. The work was exhibited at the Glasgow Institute in 1887 and favorably reviewed.

Walton settled with his family in Edinburgh in 1904 after a successful decade in London. He was elected to the Royal Scottish Academy in 1905. The two works reproduced in this folio of notecards are in the collection of the National Gallery of Scotland, Edinburgh.

Contains 5 each of the following images:
A Daydream, 1885
