Description

WITHDRAWN Sidney Richard Percy, 
British 1821-1886- 

The Highland Road; 

oil on canvas, signed and dated 'S R Percy 69' (lower right), 20.5 x 30.8 cm. 

Provenance: 
Anon. sale, Christie's, London, 6 March 2003, lot 74. 
Private Collection, UK. 

Note: 
Percy, as the son of the painter Edward Williams (1781-1855), was a member of the Williams family of artists, which also included artists George Morland (1763-1804) and James Ward (1769-1859). Percy worked as a landscape painter, depicting the countryside across the United Kingdom, drawing particular inspiration from the landscape of Northern Wales, Yorkshire, Devon, and the Scottish Highlands. 

Percy enjoyed the support of a number of prominent contemporaries, including Prince Albert (1819-1861), who bought one of his works, 'A view of Llyn Dulyn, North Wales', as a gift for Queen Victoria (1819-1901) in 1854. This painting, which remains in the Royal Collection [RCIN 403653] shares many similarities with the present work, both depicting cattle set against the towering Highland mountains beyond. The present work, however, employs an especially bright palette, with the light orange tones of the sun illuminating the landscape and the blue skies above, and imparting the work with a particular sense of optimism and vitality.
