NORIE, James
(b. 1684, Knockando, d. 1757, Edinburgh)

Classical Landscape with Architecture

Oil on canvas, 68 x 136 cm
National Gallery of Scotland, Edinburgh

This painting is a "capriccio" or invention, it is characteristic of Norie senior's ideal landscapes. The dimensions of the painting suggest that it was designed to fit over a doorway or to be inserted into a wall.
