Ben Lomond 1923
  • Scottish Art
Cameron was interested in portraying the grandeur and beauty of the Scottish Highlands, which he achieved through design rather than picturesque detail. He concentrated on the structure, tone and balance of the landscape. In this print Cameron shows the outline of Ben Lomond from across Loch Ard, but he has eliminated everything trivial to present a view of austere beauty that concentrates on the spirit of place. After giving up etching in 1917, Cameron took it up again in 1923 and then produced two of his greatest prints, this plate and the ‘Thermae of Caracalla’.
