'View of Corrie on Arran' depicts a favourite subject of Nairn, and highlights his adherence to a simplistic, yet bold form of landscape painting, capturing perfectly the aesthetic and feel of the Scottish west coast. Scenes such as this were chosen to remove the group’s work from nineteenth-century Scottish landscape painting, which emphasised the monumental and spectacular. Here instead Nairn present a quiet scene, almost devoid of activity, focusing on the reality of rural living.
