Tour Scotland Photograph Balmoral Castle Painting By Douglas Falconer
Tour Scotland photograph of a Balmoral Castle painting by Douglas Falconer, while on a visit to Scotland. Douglas was born in 1913. He initially trained as a furniture designer, gaining several important commissions, including the re-making of the bomb damaged rostrum for the auction house Christie’s. He is praised for his romantic and highly atmospheric landscapes. His scenes are mostly of Europe and Britain, and most notably depict the Lake District and the lochs and mountains of Scotland. He originally painted purely as a pastime, but committed himself to it as a result of the level and depth of demand among collectors for his work. He travelled extensively seeking inspiration for his work, and staged numerous highly successful dedicated exhibitions at galleries in London, England.
