Artist's description:

Wild white cattle once roamed the northern forests of Britain. They are easily recognised by their white coats and distinctive black muzzles, ears, feet and horn tips. It is thought that the white cattle descend from a very early group of European wild ox called the Aurochs, possibly brought to Britain for religious purposes, or used in the Roman and Phoenician trade. Their size and white colour would have made them prized as sacrificial animals.

Wild populations became established in the forests of southern Scotland. Their fearsome reputation and value as a hunting quarry saved them from extinction and by the 15th century they had become enclosed in a number of aristocratic hunting parks in southern Scotland and northern England.

This Cadzow is painted in the middle of winter at Chatelherault country Park
