On the strength of this and the small group of startlingly original landscapes he also painted around this time at the celebrated artists’ colony in Seine-et-Marne’s Grez-sur-Loing, Sickert reputedly dubbed him “one of the two greatest living painters in the world.” Even the French thought he was good, the great Impressionist dealer Durand-Ruel offering him a show in 1889 while a brief friendship with Whistler followed back in England. But the moment passed, Stott moving on to more allegorical subjects. The picture has retained its iconic reputation however and is now on tour from Tate Britain, currently on show as part of O riel y Parc’s superb British landscape display. Catch it!
