Annie Rose Laing (1869-1946)

Artist Name Annie Rose Laing (1869-1946)
Title Interior with Lady Reading
Description This superb Scottish Edwardian  Impressionist interior oil painting is by noted Scottish female artist Annie Rose Laing. Painted circa 1910, the composition is the interior of a room with a lady stood between a table and writing desk, reading a letter. The whole scene has multiple shades of blue - on the window drapes, tablecloth, writing desk  and the lady's dress. By contrast, splashes of red are on the tulips on the table, floor rugs and side of the writing desk.  In the foreground one can just see the edge of a frame of a picture on an easel and another small painting above the writing desk. On the near right is the edge of a thick green velvet curtain at the door. One has the sense of peeping into a private, intimate world. This is an excellent example of a Scottish female artist at her prime.

Biography Annie Rose Laing née Annie Rose Low (1869-1946) was a Scottish artist, known for her paintings of landscapes, children and interiors, mainly in oils but also some watercolours. Laing was born in Glasgow and studied at the Glasgow School of Art from 1888 to 1894, when she won a Haldane Travelling Scholarship which allowed her to study in Paris under Jean-Paul Laurens. Laing subsequently lived at Frascati in Italy and in London for a time but most of her life was spent in Glasgow. She joined the Glasgow Society of Lady Artists in 1908, the same year in which she married the artist James Garden Laing. Laing mostly exhibited her work in Scotland, being a regular exhibitor with the Royal Glasgow Institute of the Fine Arts and, less frequently, with both the Royal Scottish Academy and the Aberdeen Artists Society. Laing also took part in exhibitions in both Munich and Rome during 1911 and at the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool and had at least three works shown at the Royal Academy in London. She died at Uckfield in Sussex. The Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum in Glasgow holds examples of her paintings.

Exhibited: Royal Scottish Academy 10, Royal Academy 3, Glasgow Institute 63, Aberdeen Artists Society 2, Walker Gallery, Liverpool 8.
