Distinctive Vision

Earl Haig

28 Nov 2020 - 23 Dec 2020

Earl Haig (1918-2009) started painting as a prisoner of war. The paintings and drawings he made in Colditz Castle were exhibited at The Scottish Gallery in 1945 in an exhibition attended by The Queen. He went on to train under Victor Pasmore and Lawrence Gowing at Camberwell School of Art, London when fellow Scot William Johnstone was Principal. He had a distinguished exhibiting career with The Gallery which spanned over six decades, concluding with his remarkable 90th birthday show in 2008. This online presentation showcases his distinctive vision in both subject and landscape painting. Included are examples from the Scottish Borders and Italy, where he spent an increasing amount of time from the mid-1970s.
