Mother and Child by Norah Neilson Gray magnet
Fridge magnet with reproduction of the artwork Mother and Child by Norah Neilson Gray, from the National Galleries of Scotland Collection.
Norah Neilson Gray (16 June 1882 – 27 May 1931) was a Scottish artist of the Glasgow School. She first exhibited at the Royal Academy while still a student and then showed works regularly at the Paris Salon and with the Royal Academy of Scotland. She was a member of The Glasgow Girls.
After World War One, Gray built up her portrait practice, based in her studio at 141 Bath Street, Glasgow. She produced decorative but unsentimental images of young women and children. Her paintings are characterised by unconventional placing of figures, unusual colour schemes and shadow patterns, as can be seen in this work. This painting becomes increasing stylised towards the bottom of the image, using a limited palette and shadows to dramatic effect.
Perfect gift for fridge magnet collectors
