BARBARA ROBERTSON 1945 - 2018
Barbara Robertson was a graduate of Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art. She chose Printmaking as her medium, specifically Linocut, and she was a superb printmaker, sensitive, observant, full of humour and wonderfully skilled, creating technically sophisticated, complex linocuts.
She had a marvellous visual imagination and a mischievous wit which are beautifully expressed in her exceptional prints. Cats, hens, sheep and other animals make regular appearances in her work; she also portrayed the landscape of the Angus countryside where she lived. Her prints are strictly limited to small editions making them very appealing to collectors.
Barbara Robertson is a great loss to Scottish art but she leaves a wonderful legacy.
