A Life in Colour

Wilhelmina Barns-Graham

30 Jun 2022 - 23 Jul 2022

The Scottish Gallery had a lifelong association with Wilhelmina Barns-Graham (1912–2004). These works by Barns-Graham, made over a period of over 40 years, are close observations of the natural world, in summery shades of orange, yellow and brown redolent of sunshine and sand, and heat – of what Tom Cross described as ‘painting the warmth of the sun’.

'In my paintings I want to express the joy and importance of colour, texture, energy and vibrancy, with an awareness of space and construction. A celebration of life – taking risks so creating the unexpected.' - Wilhelmina Barns-Graham, 2001
