Elizabeth Blackadder Exhibition Catalogue Softcover

Philip Long and John Leighton

As Elizabeth Blackadder approaches her eightieth birthday, the Scottish artist’s passion for making art is undiminished. Although widely honoured, there is a sense that Blackadder’s art has not gained the attention it deserves, both in national and international terms. Perhaps this is because the power of her paintings is sometimes masked by the charm of her subject matter and the deceptive ease of her technique, or because we are more attuned to the loud and brash at the expense of quieter mastery.

This beautifully illustrated book, with essays by Philip Long and John Leighton, is both a celebration and invitation to look again at the work of one of our greatest living painters.
