  • Customer Reviews
As poetic as its title, “The Shortening Winter’s Day” by Joseph Farquharson is one of his many remarkable winter scenes featuring a flurry of sheep. Originally from Scotland, Farquharson (1846 – 1935) was often inspired by the woods and land bordering his home. This work’s exceptional realism attests to his patriotism and attention to detail. When it was shown at the Royal Academy, it was praised for “the ingenuity of painting, and for the power to convey the illusion of sunlight on snow, darkened by the shadows and the leafless trees behind which the winter sun is setting." The landscape was called "a tour de force."
Joseph Farquharson’s exceptional artworks were his music and their titles were his lyrics. Often naming his works after lines from famous poems, Farquharson (1846 – 1935) was renowned for expertly lit winter scenes populated by sheep. Farquharson received art supplies at age 12, and exhibited at the Royal Scottish Academy just one year later. From Finzean, Scotland, he based many of his exceptionally detailed, realistic snowscapes on his rural surroundings. Farquharson exhibited nearly 400 paintings at numerous respected galleries and artistic societies in his lifetime.
