Wilhelmina Barns-Graham: Last Light marks the sixtieth anniversary of the artist’s first solo exhibition in Scotland, which was held at The Scottish Gallery in July 1956. Thus began a relationship of almost fifty years’ standing between Barns-Graham and The Scottish Gallery. Solo exhibitions of her work were mounted at least once a decade up until her death in 2004. Last Light focuses on the late, seminal period of the artist's life and includes work from her Geoff and Scruffy and Scorpio Series, as well as rare Orkney works and posthumous prints.
Last Light coincides with the ending of the major exhibition Modern Scottish Women at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, of which Barns-Graham features.
