Gilles, William. Attrib. Still life painting.
Sir William Gilles. 1898 - 1973. This painting is signed " Gilles " but has not been verified so is being sold as attributed to him.
A very bold and delightful painting in oil on canvas. Unframed. Framing could be arranged.
Sir William Gillies is still highly underrated in Modern British terms. Born in Haddington, he trained and taught at Edinburgh College of Art, and did the latter as
principal. He was a great influence on many of the next generation of the Edinburgh School. He himself studied in Paris with Andre Lhote and absorbed, variously, the work of Munch, Matisse, Braque and Bonnard. Still life and landscape oils tend to be composed studio pieces of subtle complexity.
