Farquharson was born in Blairgowrie and settled in Edinburgh, Scotland around 1872. He exhibited his fine art in 1868 at the R. He also maintained at studio at Lands End. This magnificent painting came from the collection of William Thomson, Esq. Who lived in the town of Craig Binning, Scotland, in the 1870s, and who died in 1891.
He was an important person in that area, and was Extraordinary Director of the Commercial Bank of Scotland. He also was a well-known collector of antiques. This also may explain why this work is not signed on the front, as it actually may have been specifically intended as a gift to Mr. Farquharson's beautiful landscape work was mostly of Borders, Perthshire, and Holland scenes.
