|Description||This wonderful Victorian Scottish landscape oil painting is by noted Scottish artist Duncan Cameron. Painted in 1880 it is a superb example of his favourite subject, cornfields. The location is near Brig o' Turk, a small rural community in the Trossachs, a range of hills in Stirling, Scotland. The painting is of the harvest being brought in - Cameron has perfectly captured in the foreground the golden glowing bundles of set wheat cast long afternoon shadows and being hoisted up onto a horse and cart. The Trossach hills can be seen beyond. A really enchanting painting and an excellent example of Scottish Victorian art.
