THOMAS BROMLEY BLACKLOCK (SCOTTISH 1863 - 1903),
IN A GALLOWAY LANDSCAPE
oil on board, signed and dated 1893
25cm x 34cm
Note: A Kirkcudbright artist who trained in Edinburgh. Worked mainly in oils but also did pen & ink illustrations. He originally did landscapes but began to introduce children and fairies in the 1890s. Mentally affected by a spinal condition, he committed suicide by throwing himself into the Clyde near Greenock at the tragically young age of forty. His closest friend and helper in his troubled years was Ewan Geddes RSW (1866-1935).
Whilst every effort is made to provide accurate and honest condition reports, none of our staff is a professional conservator, restorer or engineer. Any condition report offered should be accepted as an indication of any obvious issues or problems or the lack of them. Buyers are urged to satisfy themselves in respect of the condition of any lot and McTear’s can provide contact details of local professional restorers who will provide fully comprehensive expert reports – usually for a modest charge. The condition report does not form part of any contract between McTear's and the buyer, and all lots are offered "as is" in accordance with our Terms of Business in the printed catalogue and available on our website.
