A wonderful naive painting of the Palace of Scone. Scone was from at least the 9th century the crowning-place of the Kings of Scots and home to the Stone of Scone, more commonly referred to as the Stone of Destiny. The Palace has been home to the Earls of Mansfield for over 400 years. During the early 19th century, from 1802, the Palace was enlarged by the architect William Atkinson. This painting is of the western facade of the Palace and has tremendous charm with a stylised river, figures, trees and hills. In a birdseye maple frame. Scottish, circa 1825.
