This large (56.5 x 80 cm), outstanding quality watercolor shows the famous English writer Sir Walter Scott with his literary friends at his Abbotsford House (CLICK HERE). Although unsigned, it is Thomas Faed's absolutely authentic and extremely important own replica of his oil painting in the National Galleries of Scotland (Edinburgh; see our image nr.19). The latter work is widely known through its numerous reproductions through engravings (for example, see our images nr.19-22; one of these engravings, printed in 1854 by London publisher James Keith and New York publisher Williams accompanies the watercolor presented here (see our images nr.22-24). The same museum houses a preparatory drawing for this painting (see our image nr.17). Also known is an oil study for it (see our image nr.18).
The oil painting at the National Galleries of Scotland in Edinburgh (same as our watercolor) was painted in 1849. Its layout was based on the pre-existing portraits of the gathered gentlemen. Our image nr.24 offers the names of each one of them.

Thomas Faed (1826 Burley Mill/Kirkcudbrightshire - 1900 London) was a well known Scottish genre painter of the 19th century, member of a noted artists' family (his brothers John and James and his son Francis were also renowned artists). Initially trained by his father, after the latter's death in 1843 he continued education under brother John in Edinburgh, further studied at School of Design in the same city under Sir W. Allen and Thomas Duncan. He began exhibiting his watercolors at Edinburgh Academy and won prizes. During late 1840s Faed turned to oil painting, in 1849 became associate of the Scottish Academy and soon won great popularity. In 1851 the artist had his first exhibition at the Royal Academy, London, and from 1852 permanently lived in London. From mid 1850s he was one of the most popular artists of England, regularly exhibiting at the Royal Academy (associate from 1861 and member from 1864). In 1892 Faed went blind and stopped working. His works are displayed at the Tate Gallery, Victoria and Albert Museum, in museums of Glasgow, Leicester, Liverpool, Salford, Sheffield, Sunderland, and abroad: in Hamburg, Montreal, Melbourne, Aberdeen. At the international art auction market his paintings achieve significant prices (see additional images).
