A border raid, (Picts and Scots)

Painted, 1902

As a boy Brian was inspired by the romantic tales by authors such as Walter Scott. The sense of excitement and action, the movement of the horses and the men entangled with them are themes he carried through into later work. In pictures such as this he worked from his imagination but he also studied details of armour and dress. The architecture of the timber-framed buildings he may well have observed locally; it is not Scottish.
