Anne Redpath Sold at Auction Prices

Painter, b. 1895 - d. 1965

Anne Redpath was born in Galashiels, Scotland, in 1895, the first daughter of a textile designer. She went on to study at the Edinburgh College of Art, where she was described as the most promising student of her year, and won a travel scholarship to Italy.

Her time in Italy was to have a profound influence on her career. Having spent her early years as an artist immersed in the respectable Calvinist tradition, the opulent sense of the divine in Roman Catholic art proved to be a revelation, with the religious tranquillity of the early Renaissance masters informing her subsequent paintings.

In 1920 she moved to France with her husband, an architect, and her art took a back seat as she focused on raising three sons. She did not revisit painting in earnest until she returned to Scotland when the relationship ended in 1934. When she did so, however, it was with renewed vigour.

From 1942 onwards, as her confidence in her abilities returned, her palette became more vibrant. She was a central figure in the group of painters known as The Edinburgh School, sometimes described as the heirs to the Scottish Colourists.

Redpath was an habitual traveller in her latter years, her journeys across Europe becoming the subject of her work; she was well-known for her landscapes, still lifes and pictures of church interiors.

Redpath was president of the Scottish Society of Women Artists from 1944-47, working tirelessly to promote the paintings of women who had been ignored by the British establishment. In 1952 she became the first woman artist to be elected to the Royal Scottish Academy as an Academician, and today her works can be found in the National Gallery of Scotland.

Her professional standing continued to grow, not least by becoming the first Scottish woman artist to be elected an Associate member of the Royal Academy of Arts in London in 1960 and with the acquisition of her painting, Landscape at Kyleakin, by the newly established Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art in 1962 (GMA 814). Redpath remained as active as ever in the affairs of institutions such as Edinburgh College of Art, the Society of Scottish Artists and the Royal Scottish Academy, on whose council she served four times between 1953 and 1962. As a result, she was aware of, if not directly involved in, the presentation of contemporary European art in the annual group exhibitions staged in the Scottish capital, including the work of Georges Braque, Oskar Kokoschka and Nicolas de Staël. This keeping abreast of developments in Continental painting can be seen in the expressive handling of paint in the late work Marguerites in a White Vase. Deploying her material and using a palette - based on harmonious tones of white, blue and grey with brightly coloured highlights - as only an artist of great experience and technical ability could achieve, it is an example of the still life genre infused with joie de vivre for which she is renowned. Redpath explained about her works of this period: ‘I think I have always been interested, for instance, in the textural quality of paint and painting and while, in a way they are more abstract to see than they were before, yet they are still quite real and I don’t think they ever will be completely lost in abstraction.’ (quoted by Alice Strang, Queen of Edinburgh: Anne Redpath and her Circle, lecture given at the Scottish National Gallery, Edinburgh on 24 January 2023). Moreover, Terence Mullay declared in his review of her solo exhibition at the Scottish Gallery, Edinburgh in 1960: ‘Anne Redpath’s latest exhibition…confirms her position as one of the finest painters to-day…[Her work]…provides an admirable example of how paint can be handled with enormous verve and can be all the more exciting for being closely controlled…Above all, it is her use of colour that is so moving… Her painting appeals both to the emotions and to the head.’ (Daily Telegraph and Morning Post, 25 August 1960, p. 19) Redpath’s death in 1965 was marked in multiple ways, including memorial displays and exhibitions were mounted by the Royal Scottish Academy, Scottish Gallery and Scottish Art Club. The Scottish Committee of the Arts Council of Great Britain mounted a major touring memorial exhibition of eighty-six works, which opened in Edinburgh later that year, as did an exhibition at the Scottish Gallery in which Marguerites in a White Vase was shown; it was acquired from there by the painting’s previous owner.

(BRITISH. 1895–1965) Daffodils oil on board 50.8 x 40.6 cm. (20 x 16 in.)

Daffodils, is just one example of this. Redpath’s use of colour, line and composition is carefully woven together in this case, and in that many other works she produced. After graduating from Edinburgh Collage of Art, during the 1920s Redpath devoted much time to family life while residing in France, with children and her husband. Whether it was time spent in France admiring the work of artists such or Cezanne and Bonnard or her classical grounding at art school in Scotland, it is clear Redpath’s influences are plentiful. In the mid-1930s Redpath moved back to Edinburgh and spent time painting. She was the first female painter Academician admitted to the Royal Scottish Academy in 1947. Her influence among the art circles within Edinburgh has been noted by many and her contribution to the Scottish Academy. ARR

Her love for this theme stretches back to her student days at Edinburgh College of Art, as she recalled: When I was at college I was very fond of still life. People said I wasn’t actually painting what was in front of me, that it was a vision of still life. Those were more impressionistic than I have ever done since, because I was terribly keen on light, high pitched light and shadow, and I used more of an accidental quality than I have ever done since.[1] Indeed, the first work which Redpath exhibited in public was titled Still Life and was displayed at the Royal Scottish Academy (RSA) in 1919. Following her marriage in 1920 and fourteen years spent living in France, Redpath returned to Scotland in 1934. She resumed painting in earnest and emerged as an artist of importance. This was recognised by the first acquisition of one of her works for a public collection, when the RSA purchased the still life The Lace Cloth for £50 in 1944 (acc.no.2006.37). Admiration for her still lifes soon spread to England; when the Sunday Times art critic Eric Newton reviewed the Royal Academy of Arts (RA) exhibition of 1948, he exclaimed ‘Anne Redpath’s still lifes stand out like patches of blue sky on a grey day.’[ii] The following year, Redpath moved to Edinburgh where she set about decorating her new home with the objects she loved to collect and which were often the subject matter of her work. Redpath’s professional success continued unabated and on 13 February 1952 she was elected a full member of the RSA, the first female painter to achieve that rank. In the same year she moved to 7 London Street in Edinburgh’s Georgian New Town, which was to be her home for the rest of her life. Redpath discussed the objects she collected and lived amongst, explaining in 1961: With my awful magpie tendency to collect things I have collected so many objects around me that are paintable. I buy them because I like them…any artist really becomes very aware in a visual way…and therefore you surround yourself with these things which are ready to be painted and ask to be painted. Sometimes for months you’re not really aware of them then suddenly a light changes or you feel different and suddenly you see those things as you would in a picture and you either help their arrangement or it just so happens that an artist almost sub-consciously does arranging all the time.[1] Redpath’s mature career settled into a pattern of regular travel abroad as well as solo and group exhibitions in Edinburgh and elsewhere, accompanied by an ever-growing professional standing. In 1960 she became the first Scottish woman to be elected an Associate of the RA. Her death in Edinburgh in 1965 was marked with multiple memorial exhibitions, including those mounted by the RSA and the Scottish Committee of the Arts Council of Great Britain; still lifes featured prominently in all of them.

Her love for this theme stretches back to her student days at Edinburgh College of Art, as she recalled: When I was at college I was very fond of still life. People said I wasn’t actually painting what was in front of me, that it was a vision of still life. Those were more impressionistic than I have ever done since, because I was terribly keen on light, high pitched light and shadow, and I used more of an accidental quality than I have ever done since.[1] Indeed, the first work which Redpath exhibited in public was titled Still Life and was displayed at the Royal Scottish Academy (RSA) in 1919. Following her marriage in 1920 and fourteen years spent living in France, Redpath returned to Scotland in 1934. She resumed painting in earnest and emerged as an artist of importance. This was recognised by the first acquisition of one of her works for a public collection, when the RSA purchased the still life The Lace Cloth for £50 in 1944 (acc.no.2006.37). Admiration for her still lifes soon spread to England; when the Sunday Times art critic Eric Newton reviewed the Royal Academy of Arts (RA) exhibition of 1948, he exclaimed ‘Anne Redpath’s still lifes stand out like patches of blue sky on a grey day.’[ii] The following year, Redpath moved to Edinburgh where she set about decorating her new home with the objects she loved to collect and which were often the subject matter of her work. Redpath’s professional success continued unabated and on 13 February 1952 she was elected a full member of the RSA, the first female painter to achieve that rank. In the same year she moved to 7 London Street in Edinburgh’s Georgian New Town, which was to be her home for the rest of her life. Redpath discussed the objects she collected and lived amongst, explaining in 1961: With my awful magpie tendency to collect things I have collected so many objects around me that are paintable. I buy them because I like them…any artist really becomes very aware in a visual way…and therefore you surround yourself with these things which are ready to be painted and ask to be painted. Sometimes for months you’re not really aware of them then suddenly a light changes or you feel different and suddenly you see those things as you would in a picture and you either help their arrangement or it just so happens that an artist almost sub-consciously does arranging all the time.[1] Redpath’s mature career settled into a pattern of regular travel abroad as well as solo and group exhibitions in Edinburgh and elsewhere, accompanied by an ever-growing professional standing. In 1960 she became the first Scottish woman to be elected an Associate of the RA. Her death in Edinburgh in 1965 was marked with multiple memorial exhibitions, including those mounted by the RSA and the Scottish Committee of the Arts Council of Great Britain; still lifes featured prominently in all of them.

A selection of objects, from wine glass to bunch of glasses, has been carefully and unsymmetrically arranged. The varying spaces between the elements creates relationships and visual rhythm over the striped surface on which they sit, which is tipped up to the frontal plane. Redpath forgoes classical notions of perspective, form and volume as depth is flattened and an abstract field of colour is formed in the background, with the layering of warm and dramatic tones. A single broad and bravura brushstroke of white dispenses with any illusion beyond the fact of the canvas on which the work is painted. This avant-garde approach was partly the result of Redpath’s engagement with developments in contemporary French art – not least having seen exhibitions of Nicolas de Staël and Tachisme mounted by the Society of Scottish Artists in Edinburgh in 1954 and 1956.

The striking patterned vessel in Marguerites provided one such prop. The bright blue which covers most of its surface is the perfect complement to the variously coloured titular flowers which spill out of and over its neck. The arrangement is set upon a square of fabric, itself placed on an enigmatic surface, with hints of the surrounding space provided in the background. Redpath’s relish in the application of paint is clear from the precise detailing of petals, to the broader brushstrokes with which expressive swathes of the support are covered.

She stayed in Bastia, in the north-east of the Mediterranean island, with her Edinburgh friend Donald Duff. It has been suggested that the village depicted in this confident, mature work might be Tralonca or Soveria. Redpath had long been drawn to houses and other architectural elements huddled together in a wider landscape setting. However, this subject came to the fore during the 1950s in works inspired by trips including to Spain and France. In this vigorously painted work, Redpath uses a palette based on earthy tones, layering and mixing colours across the surface of the board support. The implied geometry of the buildings gives way to expressive passages which contain hints of geographical features whilst being highly expressive. Redpath explained in 1961: ‘I think that I have always been interested in the textural quality of paint and painting and I think what I have got out of different countries like the Canary Islands, Corsica, Brittany and Portugal is something structural. So you see I haven’t gone really away from depicting the object although it has a kind of abstraction…I would go to Corsica and paint houses on a hill-side. I would exaggerate the buttress quality of the building…instead of having it at right angles to the earth I would exaggerate the fact that the base of it was broader than the top of it, then therefore it looked as if it was growing out of the hill. So that while I am interested in the structural shapes of the picture, I am also interested in the structure of the objects themselves. And therefore they are really more convincing than they were before.’ (as quoted by Philip Long, Anne Redpath 1895-1965, National Galleries of Scotland, Edinburgh, exh. cat., 1996, p. 26). We would like to thank Professor Francis Beretti of the University of Corsica for his help in researching this painting.

He recalled: ‘When filming began, one of her milking stools, which she had just painted as a gift to one of her grandchildren, stood, by chance or intention, beside a cyclamen in a pot – the one a simple artefact made to last, brightly coloured with a flowing design painted by herself, the other a pale delicate flowering cyclamen, the white flowers changing to deepening tones at their centres. Both and all were Anne Redpath.’ (George Bruce, Modern Scottish Painters: Anne Redpath, Edinburgh University Press, 1974, p. 61.). The present painting is related to another of the same title, dated to 1962, which was purchased by Aberdeen Art Gallery in 1964 (accession number ABDAG003027).

She made great efforts with the decoration of her home, which provided a rich source of subject matter. Terence Mullaly of the Daily Telegraph described her Edinburgh New Town apartment where 'colour and exuberance abounded; from the pottery cat to the putto supporting a table, it was gay and bright....Her studio ...was a veritable kaleidoscope of colour. But so, too, was the kitchen, a room at once joyous and utilitarian.' (quoted in Patrick Bourne, Anne Redpath 1895-1965, Edinburgh 2004, p.70). The present work captures that pleasure of living in beautiful surroundings. It is presented in receding layers, from flower heads to tablecloth and suggested back wall. Multiple viewpoints are combined with the same skill that the still life elements are placed, in order to create an asymmetrical yet balanced composition. A firm three-dimensionality, such as in the jug and teacup, is seen beside the decorative flatness of the tablecloth and the patterned rug glimpsed at the lower edge. Redpath's technique ranges from the richly-realised petals, to delicate dots and firm outlining. High definition gives way to expressive mark-making, whilst bright colour is contrasted with muted tones to provide structure, particularly in the yellow of the lemon at the lower centre. This is highly-sophisticated picture-making in the guise of an everyday scene. It shows how Redpath extended the belle peinture tradition within Scottish art, infused with her knowledge of the work of French modern masters including Henri Matisse and Edouard Vuillard. It is also highly personal, as Redpath explained in 1961: 'I feel that all the things that I have, that I live amongst, have both memories and experiences and are a part of my painting.'

Such is the case with Still Life Tulips and Lilies. It is infused with the joie de vivre and technical dexterity which made her a master of the genre. The titular flowers spread from a cluster at the jug's neck in the centre of the composition, towards the edges of the canvas. Redpath's pleasure in combining the 'bright and quiet colours' which she loved is clear in the realisation of the flower heads. High points of red and yellow are contrasted with the subtle tonal blending of white, blue and grey. The image is anchored by the jug set upon a doily. The former may be Italian faience or tin glazed pottery and was the kind of object which Redpath liked to collect, particularly whilst travelling in Europe. In a sophisticated manipulation of viewpoint, we are able to look down on this part of the composition, at the same time as straight towards the flower arrangement. The whole is set before a lively textured background on which the still life elements appear almost to float. Redpath's pleasure in using oil paint is clear in these passages, applied in layered expanses by way of generous and gestural brushstrokes. The result is an assured image of beauty and balance.

She spent an extended period of time in Spain in the Spring of 1951, which provided subject matter for her work over several years. Redpath was drawn to the rich and ornate decoration of Catholic churches, particularly of their interiors. This can be seen in the present work, which is an attractive view through to an intimate altar setting and was probably executed on the spot.
