This is a highly collectable original pencil signed watercolour by the Scottish artist, Ian Fleming (1906 - 1994).
It is quite a rare image by this artist in that it more of a still life with the Scottish landscape seen through the window in the distance.
Fleming was born at Glasgow - and studied drawing, painting and printmaking at Glasgow School of Art.
He won an art scholarship and used it to travel to London, Paris and Spain.
Fleming started to teach at Glasgow School of Art in the 1930s - and formed a friendship with the celebrated Scottish printmaker William Wilson.
He is probably best known for his fine prints - but he also produced fine watercolours and oils of the Scottish landscape.
He served as Principal of Gray's School of Art between 1954 and 1971.
He died at Aberdeen in 1994.
There is currently a renewed interest in his work and prices are starting to rise.
This is a much more unusual work by him - and it combines still life with a depiction of the landscape seen outside of Fleming's studio window.
On the window ledge, there is a large black coffee pot and a white vase with large yellow and white flowers in it. These colours are picked up in the landscape beyond. A tractor is shown in the yellow fields and the landscape is bathed in a bright white light which issues from a sunbeam from the milky sun hidden in the clouds.
The palette is a restricted on of pale ochres, greys and whites.
The watercolour is signed in pencil: Ian Fleming, on the lower edge of the picture, as photographed.
Image size is 47 x 65 m; The frame is 73 x 90 cm
It is framed in its original honey coloured wood frame - which has been washed with white.
Given the size of the work, it would probably have to be for pick-up only or for delivery in central Scotland.
It could be, of course, removed from its frame to post.
