Interior: The Orange Blind:
by Francis Cadell, a Scottish Colourist painter, best known for his depictions of the elegant New Town interiors of his native Edinburgh, and for his work on Iona. He died on this date in 1937 in poverty at the age of 54. I had a silver tea service similar to that at one time, but I never used it and gave it to my sister during one of my moves.

That's a gorgeous tea service. Very impressive. I think giving it to your sister was probably a very smart move, because you didn't use it, and possibly she got some good out of it.ReplyDelete
I think your choice of paintings today was fantastic. I really liked this and the artwork. It was good that you mentioned him at the time of his death. Quite young, too.
Thanks for sharing this painting and the tea service with us for T this soon to be Tuesday.
My MIL gave me her sliver tea set years ago. When I finally tired of polishing it I passed it on to one of my sons......LOL! They don't even have it setting out either!ReplyDelete
This is a great painting, love the orange blind. Sad that he died so young and broke too. Imagine what that painting is worth today.....he could have lived well on it.
Thanks for sharing it.....Happy T-day
This is a great painting. I can picture wearing gorgeous period clothes and having a fancy tea. It would be fun I think. Thanks for sharing as I have never heard of Francis Cadell. Boy, am I learning a lot this week during T day. Hugs-ErikaReplyDelete

I think I have at least part of a tea service squirreled away in a keepsake box...I suppose I should dig it out and see what is actually in that box one of these days! :)ReplyDelete
Doesn't this image caputure the days of a by-gone time. The tea service is beautiful. Kind of you to give it to your sister if you weren't goin got use it.ReplyDelete
This is such a beautiful painting, the depth of perspective achieved is amazing! The tea service is wonderful and what a lovely thing to give to your sister :-). Wishing you a Happy T Day! J :-)ReplyDelete
What a lucky sister you have! The painting is very striking with the bright orange block in the background. Funny how that doesn't detract from the elegance. I need to read about the Colourists. Happy T day!ReplyDelete
What a lovey tea service set!!!! I do like the painting a lot.ReplyDelete
Looks like a wonderful tea set, you have a lucky sister :) In my case it would probably sit somewhere (pretty) and gather dust though...ReplyDelete
Hi D&S thanks for visiting, and yes after the holiday is best! That tea set is too posh to be used lol. Sorry I'm so late getting here but at least I did it this time!ReplyDelete
