The Avenue, Kelty, Fife and The Firth of Forth and the Bass Rock beyond.
watercolour, heightened with bodycolour ,signed and dated 1876. 11ins x 13ins
Samuel Bough loved painting in this area of Fifeshire. Painting the banks of the Forth and its people at work. In the distance highlighted against the background is the Bass Rock.
The figures , probably returning from harvest, are caught in the dappled sunlight of the avenue of trees. Harvesting scenes were one of Bough favourite subjects, using creamy golden yellows to
for the stooks and harvested fields.
