Footnotes

  • Sir Joseph, and his brother Waller, Paton were two of Scotland's most remarkable talents of the 19th C. Born in Dunfermline, Paton designed muslins in Paisley before attending the Royal Academy Schools in the early 1840's, where he met and befriended John Everett Millais. Paton's work has much in common with his contemporaries in the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, most notably a meticulous style and approach, and he favoured literary themes and, notably, 'fairy' subjects such as Quarrel of Oberon and Titania (National Galleries of Scotland), also painted in 1846. Although he became particularly renowned for these themes, they come rarely to the market.
