Estate collection Graham Hutchison; by descent to various owners
The original painting by Turner was painted in 1835 and is now in the Tate Gallery, London. Graham Hutchison was a 19thc. Scottish merchant from Glasgow. It is believed this work was painted around the time Hutchison purchased Craigton House, an estate on the outskirts of Glasgow, from the then owner, Henry Dunlop of Craigton. It is believed that Hutchison's heirs remain the current proprietors of Craigton.
