About

This lovely Scottish double portrait oil painting is by noted artist James Bowman. Painted in 1952, the sitters are Robert and George, a keen golfer and an artist . The similarity in their appearance suggests they are either twins or brothers close in age. One is holding a golf club and the other is drawing aeroplanes. The bold fluid Impressionist brushwork is superb as is the range of palette making this an excellent example of Scottish colourist art. Signed Bowman '52 lower right. Provenance. Aitken Dott label verso. Condition. Oil on Canvas, 30 inches by 25 inches and in good condition. Frame. Housed in a gesso Aitken Dott - The Scottish Gallery frame, 37 inches by 32 inches and in good condition. James Bowman (1927-2013) was a Scottish artist born in Haddington in East Lothian where he had several addresses. He painted in oils and watercolour including portraits and also scenes around East Lothian such as Haddington by Moonlight and Dean Village in Edinburgh.
