We are delighted to announce William Crosbie's fifth solo show with The Scottish Gallery.
'My devotion to the muse and the life it has led me has meant I have enjoyed richness of texture not readily to hand to the majority of my fellow citizens.' William Crosbie, 1990
Crosbie did enjoy the life he led, the distinct, challenging life of the devoted creative. He had a fine, enquiring mind, was deeply read and was immersed in the liberal arts; he had great technical gifts and was happy to apply these far beyond the confines of studio and easel but at the same time he recognised that a painter needed to paint and to exhibit. This determination to be engaged with the hurly burly and a prodigious work ethic have left much to be rediscovered and when his widow Anne moved from the home they shared in Hampshire last year we felt that so much unseen work deserved an airing, alongside one of his many wonderful model boats. We are grateful to the family for their faith and assistance and to Ewan Mundy for his fine introduction in the accompanying catalogue. Click here to purchase the catalogue.
