Having just been newly professionally cleaned and re-varnished. Between 1859 and 1892 Joseph Denovan exhibited 25 oils at the Royal Academy in London, as well as many more at the British Institution, the Royal Society of British Artists and the Paris Salon. The son of the Scottish landscape painter Joseph Adam, Joseph Denovan Adam would go on to eclipse the achievements of his father becoming late Victorian Britains most celebrated painter of Highland cattle.Where others painters of the Highlands such as Horatio McCulloch were content to dot their landscapes with a few cattle Adam gave them pride of place. Adam was a stickler for painting from nature, and had a large studio - part wooden hut, part glass conservatory built on his house to serve as an all-weather observation base.
He called it his cattle atelier, and here he established a school of animal painting where he kept many live animals for his students to draw. (framed) 133cm x 89cm (52¼ x 35).

At Fireside Fine Art we specialise in 19th century British and European oil paintings.We deal only in oil paintings; no prints of any kind. We believe everyone should own at least one beautiful piece of original artwork. Clients should always bear in mind that the vast majority of paintings we deal in are antiques - works over 100 years old and frequently much older and will therefore invariably retain some evidence of aging, historical damage and repair. During its lifetime a 150-year old oil painting may well have been exposed to extremes of heat or cold, intrusion of water, bumps, cuts and natural age-related deterioration, all of which require restoration. Its ironic that 99.9% of the worlds fine art is owned by the wealthiest 0.01% of the population when so many of the artists who created it lived and died in relative poverty.
The fact is that the art world, especially in times of global recession, thrives on inequality. But whilst the possibility of purchasing works by Leighton, Holman Hunt, Constable, and Turner is always going to be the preserve of the super-rich, it has never been a better time to invest in works by their contemporaries.
