This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Most well-known as a painter of snowscapes, Farquharson was a Scottish laird by inheritance.  He studied at the Trustees' Academy in Edinburgh, with landscape painter Peter Graham being his strongest influence in the 1860s.  From 1880 on, he spent several winters at the studio of Carolus-Duran in Paris, France.  Back in Scotland, he adapted the French plein-air techniques to his work.

Biography from Bonhams Edinburgh:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Farquharson's imposing pictures of sheep in snow, or 'frozen mutton' as they were affectionately termed, are some of the most recognisable works in British art during the first quarter of the 20th C. Farquharson was laird on the family estate at Finzean, Aberdeenshire, and used a makeshift bothy and plaster-cast sheep to assist him in working en plein air in inclement weather. He had a very keen commercial sense, and reworked themes of shepherds and flocks in all weathers, imbuing his scenes with warmth via pink skies or, in this case, the comforting light from the cottage in the gloaming. These proved consistently popular with his patrons.
