About this artwork

A founder member of the National Party of Scotland, later the Scottish Nationalist Party, Wendy Wood campaigned for the cause of an independent Scotland for over half a century. She was also a practising artist who had trained with Walter Sickert and she regularly sent work to the Royal Scottish Academy. Wood was a close friend of St John Caddell with whom she shared a studio in Edinburgh. When this portrait was exhibited in 1959, it had the alternative title 'The Patriot'.
