A comprehensive survey of his life and the development of his art, from his early struggles as an artist up to his final recognition as RSA, RSW. The people he met – Gauguin, Vuillard, Hornel- and the places he painted – Kirkcudbright, Normandy, Venice – form the core of the talk.
The illustrations cover all aspects of his oeuvre – watercolour, oil, tooled leatherwork woodblock prints and sculpture. A journey with this ‘forgotten man’ of Scottish art will provide evidence of his skill as a colourist and reclaim his place in art’s pantheon.
