About

Though there is no label on this frame it is recognisable as a companion to the W. A. Smith frame on Halsewelle’s Heart of the Coolins, Isle of Skye 1886, which was purchased the year after this painting.
Variations of this frame can be found on Peter Graham’s An Easterly Breeze (p.312.2-1) , and After the Massacre of Glencoe (p.315.1-1) along with William Hatherell The baliffs daughter of Islington (4308-3)
