"Sketch for Christmas Day" 1898

42.8 x 55.4 d. b.r. "98" CRE McTAGGART, William; (Scottish; 1835-1910) Label: In the 1890s McTaggart painted a series of snow scenes which are unmatched in Scottish painting. Here his free, loaded brushwork effectively conveys the winter whiting-out of sun, sky and land; the trees provide necessary dark punctuation. The larger finished composition is in Kirkaldy Art Gallery.
