I have an old nabour who is also an artist. Very occasionally we talk about art.
Once he asked me who my favourite artists were.
I named people like Rik Wouters, Helene Schjerfbeck, Isaac Israels, Eric Ravilious and Joan Eardly.
All well and good, but they weren't the Great Masters!
True. I fall more for the lesser gods than for big names like Rubens, Rembrandt or Picasso.
The Scottish artist I wanted to show today, Anne Redpath (1895-1965) is again one of the lesser gods, but I love her work! Her subjects are 'everyday' subjects, her colors are beautiful, and she paints in a nicely chunky way.
