Stirling Castle was a favourite motif of the artist's, and drawings of the castle were shown at the Society of Twelve in 1904 (23) and again in 1910 (41). An oil was exhibited at the R.S.A. in 1914 (398), and at least two other views of the castle were painted, including one in the possession of Arthur Ackermann & Sons, New York, in 1926 (repr. in colour, Apollo, IV, 1926, facing p.216) and another, ‘Spring Sunrise - Stirling’, 24 3/4×30 1/4, belonging to Barbizon House in 1921 (repr., Barbizon House Record, 1921).
