About

A fine oil on canvas by Scottish listed artist John Campbell Noble RSA. Painted circa 1906 it is a fine example of Scottish Impressionism and depicts the ferry at Iona with the sea and mountains. It is very vibrant with excellent colour and impasto and is in gallery condition. It is titled and inscribed on the gilt mount and indistinctly signed lower right. Provenance. Scottish collection. Framed in a fine gallery frame 37 by 30 inches. In good condition. James Campbell Noble (1846-1913) was born in Edinburgh and was the cousin of the painter Robert Noble RSA (1857-1917), whose teacher he was. He travelled throughout Europe to paint, where the Netherlands and Italy were particularly favourites. Initially he began with rustic genre such as dark cottages and outside life. Then, when he became a member of ARSA in 1879 and the Royal Scottish Academy in 1892, he abandoned the previous subject for land and seascape scenery and marine paintings of rivers and ports. He painted the scenery on the Clyde, Seine, Tyne, Merwede, Maas (Meus) and Rhine. For a long part of his life he actually lived in the Netherlands where his favourite port for painting seemed to have been Dordrecht, Dort for short. There are quite a number of his oil paintings painted in this harbour vicinity which also seem to have attracted other painters. However he also painted in places like-Gravendeel, Volendam and Zaandam. In the early 1880s he painted the rocky coastal scenes of Berwickshire whilst he was living in Coldingham. He returned however to the Netherlands in 1900 painting the Dutch waterways again. Towards the end of his life he lived again in Scotland, where he lived in Dumfries and Galloway and where he is also mentioned in Corstorphine in 1896. His Sunset near Glencaple was exhibited at Royal Scottish Academy in 1913. His portrait was painted by the well known portrait painter John Pettie and is exhibited in the Scottish National Portrait Gallery in Edinburgh. He died on 25 September 1913 in Ledaig, Argyll.
