Kewaigue, Braddan

Date made: c.1900-1933

Artist: Knox, Archibald

Description: A watercolour by Archibald Knox (1864-1933) of the back of Kewaigue farmhouse viewed through the surrounding trees. Although the farmhouse and outbuildings will have been whitewashed, Knox has shown that objects are rarely white but reflect the colours around them, so this farmhouse has been painted in a variety of warm sepia and ochre tones of the surrounding trees. Whitewashed farm buildings and mills were a popular (and challenging) topic for Knox as he tried to capture what was essentially a 'white box' and attempted to give it volume and make it 3 dimensional on the paper.
