Permanence and Fragility: Paintings and Drawings by Victoria Crowe

13 October - 12 December

 

Victoria Crowe is well known for portraits of artists, writers and scientists including the poet Kathleen Raine (National Portrait Gallery), actor Graham Crowden (Scottish NPG) and most recently Prof. Peter Higgs, for the Royal Society of Edinburgh.   She is a member of the Royal Scottish Academy, and was appointed OBE in 2004.

More widely, her work embraces both figure and landscape, often in striking combination.  The series A Shepherd’s Life (1970-1985) focuses on life in the Scottish Borders, and one subject has been converted into tapestry by Dovecot Studios in Edinburgh.

She has a passion for the natural world, and also spends much time in Venice, which has inspired large paintings redolent with images of the city’s buildings and history.  These interests echo those of John Ruskin, and this exhibition of past and recent work will offer many points of connection.
