Artwork of the Week – ‘Forth Rail Bridge’ by Struan Robb

Artwork of the Week takes a look at this amazing painting by Struan Robb. ‘The Forth Rail Bridge’ is a very large painting on canvas and is currently on display as part of our Young Talent 2022 exhibition!

Struan Robb has a fascination with these locomotives, and has captured the power and speed perfectly in this canvas. With the red bridge in the background there’s no way to mistake the location of this painting. Forth Bridge is a cantilever railway bridge built across the Firth of Forth at Queensferry, 14km west of Edinburgh, UK. The Forth Rail Bridge opened in 1890 as the world’s first major steel structure, the Forth Bridge represents a key milestone in the history of modern railway civil engineering and still holds the record as the world’s longest cantilever bridge. A full-scale restoration project to return the bridge to its original construction condition was completed in 2012.

We absolutely love this painting and Struan’s skills have really shone through. It is a gorgeous painting and is available to purchase from our Young Talent exhibition! Get in touch if you are interested to learn more about it.

He has also another train painting int he show… The Flying Scotsman!
