About this artwork

Although Chalmers was primarily a figurative painter, he also produced a number of landscapes. Unlike the work of his friend McTaggart who adopted an increasingly brilliant and light keyed palette, Chalmers' landscapes are generally muted in colour and low in key, recalling the tonality of the French Barbizon and Dutch Hague School painters, whose work was becoming popular in Scotland.
