“With a picture you’ve got to get it precise or it’s wrong.” ~ Craigie Aitchison
Craigie Aitchison (1926 – 2009)
“In a career spanning over 5 decades, Aitchison was known and admired for the Mediterranean intensity of his palette, his flat, almost two-dimensional forms and his simple icon-like compositions. His distinctive subject matter consists of still lifes, landscapes, portraits, nudes, Bedlington terriers and sheep, as well as crucifixions, all rendered in vibrant, luminous colour, invoking both the early Italian Renaissance as well as the British visionary tradition.
This is the first exhibition of Aitchisonʼs paintings in London since his death in 2009. The works in the show, a few of which have not been exhibited for many years, have been selected by Terry Danziger Miles, executor to The Estate of Craigie Aitchison”.
