About this artwork

For a Lady Remembered was painted in March 2007. The title refers to the artist’s wife, Dorothy, who accompanied him on his painting trips and died in January 2006, after more than fifty years of marriage. He had difficulty returning to painting; this is one of the earliest successful paintings after her death. The mountain on the horizon is Suilven, near Lochinver in the western Highlands of Scotland. Morrison painted outdoors, in front of the motif, but sometimes finished the paintings back in his studio. They are seldom ‘photographic’: he tended to shift landscape motifs about to suit the painting.
