Thomas Faed

Thomas Faed Painting - A Poor Beggar Bodie by Thomas Faed

A Poor Beggar Bodie

Thomas Faed RSA (1826 – 1900) was a Scottish painter who is said to have done for Scottish art what Robert Burns did for Scottish song.[1]

Faed was born on 8 June 1826, in Gatehouse of Fleet, Kirkcudbrightshire, and was the brother of John Faed.[2]

He received his art education in the school of design, Edinburgh and was elected an associate of the Royal Scottish Academy in 1849. He went to London three years later, was elected an associate of the Royal Academy in 1861, and academician in 1864, and retired in 1893. He had much success as a painter of domestic genre, and had considerable executive capacity.

Three of his pictures, The Silken Gown, Faults on Both Sides, and The Highland Mother are in the Tate Gallery and a further two, Highland Mary and The Reaper hang in the Aberdeen Art Gallery. The Last of the Clan, completed in 1865 and arguably his best known work, is in the Kelvingrove Gallery in Glasgow.[3] He produced several versions of this work, including a smaller version now in The Fleming Collection.[4]
