Elizabeth Blackadder RA, Hillside Traquair, I972, 660mm X 1010 mm
Elizabeth Blackadder was born in 1931 at Falkirk and studied at the University of Edinburgh College of Art where she now teaches drawing and painting. In 1955 she was awarded a travelling scholarship to Italy and has since worked in France and Portugal. The Hillside is typical of her landscapes in which naturalism is formalised by solid forms and subdued colours. She has had exhibitions in London, Edinburgh and Florence and her work is in many public galleries.
