Edinburgh (from Salisbury Crags) William Crozier Tea Towel
100% Cotton Tea Towel featuring Edinburgh (From Salisbury Crags), c.1927, by William Crozier, part of the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art Collection
This is one of a number of paintings by Crozier which show views of Edinburgh. The work shows strong affinities with Cubism, in the way the buildings are reduced to simple cubic blocks. The use of light, with the sunlit fronts of the buildings contrasting with the deeply-shaded sides, is influenced by the strong sunlight found in Italy, where the artist had travelled several years previously on a travelling scholarship. During this same trip, Crozier had also studied with the painter André Lhote in Paris, who taught him how to break down a subject geometrically, as in this painting.
