Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 085331828X, Hardcover)

In this examination of the six decades of Wilhelmina Barns-Graham's work, Lynne Green traces the evolution of the artist's individual vision in relation to her Scottish roots and the influence of her teachers at the Edinburgh School of Art. Her commitment to abstraction is discussed in depth, as is the series of paintings in which she explores the possibilities of pure line, form and colour. Green places Barns-Graham in the story of the St Ives School and establishes her personal achievement as a painter and her wider contribution to 20th-century art.
