Wilhelmina Barns-Graham

Wilhelmina Barns-Graham (1912-2004) was a Scottish artist who was to become a significant part of the St Ives group moving to Cornwall in 1940. Becoming an active member of this group of artists enabled her to pursue her desire to be part of a modernist, progressive and forward looking band of artists. Unfortunately she was in Scotland at the time of the first major exhibition of the St Ives group and was not represented in the catalogue of the show. This played against her over the years as she was not given the recognition she rightly deserved as part of the original group. We carry a number of her prints in stock, including some now rare examples of her works in Artist and Printers Proof form. A number are from small posthumous editions.
