George Devlin: The Memorial Exhibition

This catalogue records the final body of paintings made by George Devlin before his death in 2014 and does not set out to reassess or place the artist in a history of Scottish art. That might well be undertaken some day and would comprise a complete retrospective, rediscovering much work from the sixties and seventies unrecognisable to many of George’s friends and collectors. George was not beamed down as a fully-formed impressionist on to the banks of a canal in Vetheuil in 1981. He had a varied career up to that moment, full of the usual triumphs and disasters (and Kipling’s twin imposters would not be entirely absent from the next thirty years or so either) but at that moment, after the birth of his daughter Nuala and happy and fortunate in his second marriage to Marie he was able to stop striving to make his way in the art world and begin to be true to himself.
