Joseph Farquharson

Joseph Farquharson (1846-1935) was a Scottish painter best known for his winter landscapes. The first one here is one of the best depictions of winter I have seen.

 A Flock of Sheep in a Snowstorm

 A Surrey Lane

 An Aberdeenshire Farm Under Snow (1896)

 And the Sun Peeped O'er Yon Southland Hills

 Cauld Blaws the Wind Frae East to West (1888)

 Evening at Finzean 


 Herding Sheep in a Winter Landscape at Sunset

 Homeward through the Glistening Snow

 On a Clear Eve When the November Sky Grew Red (1899)

 The Joyless Winter Day (1883)

 The Shortening Winter's Day is Near a Close (1903)

 Through the Calm and Frosty Air (1908)

When the West with Evening Glows (1901)
