Herbert F Royle (1870-1958)
West Loch Tarbert. Harris

A delightful landscape depicting West Loch on the Isle of Harris. West Loch Tarbert is a sea loch that separates the northern and southern parts of Harris in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland. Royle travelled extensively in Scotland and a similar smaller example of his work is currently listed for auction at Bonhams, with an estimate of £800-£1200.

Born in Manchester in 1870, Herbert Royle’s work is characterised by impressionistic landscapes painted en plein air . His technique came from his tutor Buxton Knight. Although born in Lancashire he is regarded as a Yorkshire painter with most of his inspiration coming from the fields and environs of Bolton Abbey. He was a member of the Wharfdale Group and Yorkshire Union of Artists.

A prolific exhibitor including at the Royal Academy, Royal Scottish Academy, the Glasgow Institute and at the Royal Society of Painters in Oils.
