John Faed

John Faed, the eldest of the six children of James Faed and Mary McGeoch was born at Barlay Mill, Gatehouse in 1819.  He showed early artistic promise and by the age of nine was painting miniatures of the local dignitaries.  He was encouraged in his work by the family of William Campbell, who had settled in Gatehouse and in whose house he learned to paint miniatures on ivory.  He was also encouraged by Lord Kenmure, who, on a visit to Gatehouse was impressed with the boy’s work and gave him his own box of water colours.

 

John left Gatehouse for Edinburgh in 1840 to pursue his career and had his first work accepted at the Royal Scottish Academy the following year.  John Faed continued to exhibit at the RSA till 1895.  He became an associate member in 1847 and a full member in 1851.  Following his father’s death in 1842 John encouraged his brother Thomas to come to Edinburgh where he helped to finance his studies.

 

While Thomas Faed moved to London in 1851, John remained in Edinburgh, where he painted scenes from Scottish history and drew inspiration from the works of Burns, Scott and Shakespeare.  In the mid 1850s he was commissioned to illustrate The Cottar’s Saturday Night, Tam o’ Shanter and the Soldier’s Return.

In 1864 John Faed also went to London but the call of his native Galloway remained strong and in 1867 he bought a plot of land on the outskirts of Gatehouse and built a house there.  After spending the summers in Gatehouse and the winters in London he finally settled permanently in the town in 1880.  As he himself said: “Finding that the class if subjects that I was then engaged with required country models, and Gatehouse could supply them of all ages, in perfection, I finally decided to leave London.”  Among his favourite models was the retired local farmer Sandy Inglis , who can be seen in many of John’s works including The Old Mare Maggie and The Battle of Blenheim.

 

In his old age in Gatehouse John Faed remained an inspiration for the new generation of Kirkcudbright  artists.  He was President of the Kirkcudbright Fine Art Association, which was set up by Hornel and other young artists returning to Kirkcudbright in 185 after training in Edinburgh and in Antwerp.  Faed encouraged Hornel and advised the young MacGeorge and his colleagues  not to take any notice of the local critics of their work.  In the year 1885 he painted his large View over Gatehouse for the Town Hall, which was opened by his brother Thomas.

 

John Faed died at Ardmore, Gatehouse on 22 October 1902 at the age of 83.
