Item description: 

Fielding, a student of John Varley, was much influenced by Girtin and Turner. In his landscapes he made something of a specialty of atmospheric effects, which received high praise from Ruskin. This view of the head of Glencoe, dated 1823, was exhibited at the Old Water-Colour Society in 1824.
