Old Woman Spinning

Old-Woman-SpinningSent in by Marel Adam, this dutch painting dated 1658 by artist Nicolaes Maes was allegedly at Milheugh for some time in the 1800s belonging to William Bannatyne. William’s parents Andrew and Margaret were largely responsible for renovating, extending and landscaping Milheugh transferring it from Georgian Manor house to Victorian Grand home.

In the 20th Century, the painting ended up being donated to an art gallery and is titled “Old Woman Spinning”. Makes me wonder whatever happened to all the fine art in these old Blantyre homes, now no longer there.
