John Falconar Slater Oil on Board
An impressionistic farmyard scene depicting haystack and barn with chickens and ducks in the foreground.
John Falconar Slater (1857-1937) was a Northumbrian artist who painted a wide range of subjects in oils and watercolours exhibiting prolifically in the North East of England. He is affectionately known as the “weatherproof artist” for his practice of painting outdoors in all conditions. He was a member of the Bewick Club, the President of the North East Art Club, based in Whitley Bay, and a leading member of the Cullercoats Colony. Many of his works reside in galleries across the country, including the National Maritime Museum and the Laing Art Gallery.
Towards the end of his career, he became influenced by the French impressionists such as Monet. We believe this can be seen in this painting.
