James Cowie

Artist:James Cowie
Cuminestown, Aberdeenshire, Scotland, 1886 - 1956

oil on board

Cowie used surreal motifs - such as a picture frame acting as both a window and a picture - in this work, which is considered to be one of his most ambitious paintings.

Cowie was interested in the technique of painting and studied the methods of artists such as Degas. He made many careful, preparatory sketches, in pencil or watercolour, for all of his oil paintings.
