Thomas Faed (Scottish, 1825 - 1900)
Thomas Faed and his older brothers, John and James, made a substantial contribution to Scottish painting through their scenes from Scottish history and contemporary domestic life. The circulation of prints made after these paintings increased their popularity. Thomas' work, with its strong narrative content inspired by Wilkie, brought him international renown. The brothers, originally from Gatehouse-of-Fleet, Kirkcudbright, trained in Edinburgh at the Trustees' Academy, where Thomas won the life-class prize in 1847. Following his paintings' success at the Royal Academy, Thomas moved to London in 1851. Among his patrons was the philanthropic baroness, Angela Burdett-Coutts, one of the wealthiest heiresses in Britain.
