Edward J. Barclay - The Faggot Gatherers

[The Faggot Gatherers]
signed and dated l.l.: E. Barclay/1901
oil on canvas
93 by 156.5 cm., 36 1/2 by 61 1/2 in.
fl. 1868 - 1888 (1846 - 1903 ?)
London landscape painter, he did many watercolour views of Italy (where he studied).
nb. Christopher Wood gives his name as Edward J. Barclay (as does my Sotherby's catalogue - 2001) but Artnet gives his name as 'James Edward Barclay' and AskArt does the same and says he lived his later life in America but died in Edinburgh in 1903.
