The Faeds: A Family of Painters

5 March - 22 April 2015

John Faed HRSA (1819-1902) / James Faed Senior (1821-1911) / Thomas Faed ARSA RA (1826-1900) / James Faed Junior (1856-1920) / William Cotton Faed (1858-1937)


One of the oldest and rarest of Scottish surnames and with its history firmly rooted in the picturesque landscape that is Dumfries and Galloway, for over a decade the Faed name has been associated with the family of artists from the area. From portraits of Highland Marys and Robert Burns, to scenes of rural and domestic life in Galloway and rolling countryside, the family covered many genres which did, and still does today, appeals to many.
