Landscape with Wood Yard about 1880
  • Scottish Art
This complicated picture, an expression of Cox's own interest in landscape, may have been taken near Baldovie Toll. It is a technically challenging composition, which needs to reconcile the darkness of the land and buildings with the bright light of the sky and water. Cox has very artfully achieved detail even in the darker areas, standing the two figures within the doorway of the shed.
