The Night Stall Dated 1860
  • Scottish Art
This painting epitomises Alexander Hohenlohe Burr’s creative response to seventeenth-century Dutch and Flemish painting. The dramatic chiaroscuro and monumentality of the figures viewed close to the picture plane are strongly reminiscent of the candle-lit night scenes of the Dutch followers of Caravaggio. The meticulous figure drawing seen here was characteristic of the early independent works of all of the former students of Robert Scott Lauder. In subject matter and treatment, The Night Stall also recalls the Edinburgh street life scenes of Walter Geikie.
