Large Tree Group by Victoria Crowe art print
35 x 28 cm art print featuring Large Tree Group by Victoria Crowe, part of the National Galleries of Scotland collection.
This reproduction of the celebrated painting is set near Victoria Crowe’s home in the hamlet of Kittleyknowe in the Scottish Borders, where she moved to from London in 1968. Crowe frequently painted her neighbour and friend, the shepherd Jenny Armstrong - she is seen here as a small, dark figure set against the snow. Armstrong had worked all her life in the Borders and Crowe documented her changing relationship with the land over a period of fifteen years.
The original painting was exhibited in ‘A Shepherd’s Life’ at the Scottish National Portrait Gallery in 2000. In 2014, ‘Large Tree Group’ was reproduced as a tapestry by Dovecot Studios and donated to the National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh.
