EDITORS COMMENTS
This print transports us back to the 1950s, when British Railways (Scottish Region) commissioned renowned artist Terence Cuneo to create this stunning poster titled "By Rail to The Highlands". Cuneo, known for his exceptional railway scenes, showcases his talent in capturing the picturesque beauty of the Scottish countryside. In this illustration, a train gracefully winds its way through an idyllic Highland landscape. The viewer is immediately drawn into the scene, mesmerized by the lush greenery and dramatic monessie gorge that surrounds the tracks. The steam locomotives add a touch of nostalgia and evoke a sense of adventure as they powerfully traverse through Inverness-shire. Cuneo's artistic prowess shines through in every detail of this composition. Having studied at prestigious art schools in London, he mastered various subjects ranging from portraits to ceremonial and military scenes. His ability to bring life and depth to his paintings is evident here as well. Printed by Leonard Ripley & Co Ltd in London, this print captures not only Cuneo's brilliance but also pays homage to British Railways' commitment towards showcasing Scotland's natural wonders. It serves as a reminder of how railways played an integral role in connecting people with these breathtaking landscapes. This remarkable piece from NRM/Cuneo Fine Arts invites us on a visual journey through time and space – reminding us why rail travel has always held such allure for adventurers seeking new horizons amidst nature's splendor.
