Pastoral-Landscape. Charlotte Nasmyth 1800sjpg

Charlotte Nasmyth (1804-84) painted this Pastoral Landscape. The National Galleries of Scotland site tells us usefully: ‘A member of a large and gifted family, Charlotte was the sixth daughter of the landscape painter Alexander Nasmyth. All the girls were talented artists, trained to draw and paint by their father so that they could run art classes from their Edinburgh home and eventually support themselves independently. Charlotte painted romantic landscapes which were widely exhibited.’ There is a self-portrait here.
