About

A fine oil on canvas painted circa 1930, it depicts a portrait of a young woman in hunting dress. This is a great painting of a young woman in excellent condition and in a gallery frame. A fine example of inter war 20th century British Art Deco portraiture. Signed lower left. Provenance. Midlands estate. Gallery frame 27 inch by 23 inch approx. Excellent condition. (Frame may be similar to one shown in the photo) David Murray Urquhart (1880-1972) was born in Kirkcudbrightshire, Scotland. He had a very varied training as a painter. He studied at the Edinburgh School of Art, the Slade and the Westminster School of Art where he was tutored by Walter Sickert, whose influence is clearly evident in his subsequent work. Later he studied at Frank Calderon’s Animal School and finally at the Academie Julian under J-P Laurens. One of the most striking features of Urquhart’s work was his adoption of the contre jour, where the light is made to glow through the use of a modified palette of pointillism. Indeed, The Travelling Circus bears bold testament to this technique. Urquhart exhibited extensively at the RBA, of which he was a member, and also the Lefevre Gallery, Walker’s galleries, the RA and the NEAC. He died in 1972.
