Edward Arthur Walton - Portrait of Cecile Walton

Edward Arthur Walton (1860-1922) was a Scottish painter of landscapes and portraits, associated with the Düsseldorf school of painting.

The portrait depicts Cecile Walton (1892–1956), the artist's oldest daughter aged 13, presumably in Walton's studio in his house at 7 Belford Park, Edinburgh where he had moved in 1904. Cecile is depicted in the painting looking at a portfolio with a pencil in her hand. This reflects her interest in art from an early age and her childhood mania for drawing which eventually led to her becoming a successful artist and part of the Edinburgh art scene herself, exhibiting with 'The Edinburgh Group' from 1919.

Sandro Botticelli


Alessandro di Mariano di Vanni Filipepi (1445-1510), dit Sandro Botticelli, est un peintre italien. Botticelli est l'un des peintres les plus importants de la Renaissance italienne et de l'histoire de l'art.

Alessandro di Mariano di Vanni Filipepi (1445-1510), known as Sandro Botticelli, was an Italian painter of the Early Renaissance. He belonged to the Florentine School under the patronage of Lorenzo de' Medici, a movement that Giorgio Vasari would characterize less than a hundred years later in his Vita of Botticelli as a "golden age". Botticelli's posthumous reputation suffered until the late 19th century; since then, his work has been seen to represent the linear grace of Early Renaissance painting.
