A stunning original oil painting circa 1840's by renowned 19th century artist Robert Cleminson RA (fl 18121832)of a Deer hunting scene with Irish Setter Dogs and a Highland Ghillie on his horse, chatting whilst waiting to go down the mountain after the hunt. I'm sure the ghillie standing in the painting is the same man seen in Edwin Landseer's painting'Queen Victoria Sketching at Loch Laggan' from 1847. Cleminson was clearly influenced by Landseer or vica versa.
Signed lower right, titled verso,'The Glen Orchy Gillie'. They look to be wearing Campbell tartan. Was a sporting painter who specialised in Highland scenes and sporting scenes. He became very well known for his subjects of deer, game birds and sporting dogs.Exhibited at the British Institution and at the Society of British artists, Suffolk Street 1865-68.
