I don't think this work is by the Scottish James Cowie, his style was very different. You can see an example here - http://www.nationalgalleries.org/index.php/collection/online_az/4:322/results/0/1081/

Great blog!

I think you're right - thanks. The name is definately correct as I just checked the Christie's catalogue but I think I assumed it was the Scottish artist because the dates seemed right, but the style is too different. Must be some other James Cowie. Appreciate your putting me right.

the guard seems a bit sad about something, like hes lamenting something.
