Alice Strang, former curator at National Galleries of Scotland will discuss the doyenne of post-World War Two Scottish art, Anne Redpath. Renowned for her joyously coloured still-lifes, interiors and landscapes, Redpath was the first female painter to be elected a full member of the Royal Scottish Academy. She was also a popular hostess in her New Town flat, where she lived between 1952 until her death in 1965. This talk will celebrate her professional success as well as her friendships with other leading modern Scottish artists, including William Gillies, David McClure and Robin Philipson.
