William Wilson, ‘Venice’, ca. 1953, The Scottish Gallery

Wilson was very much a part of the ‘Edinburgh School’ many of whom emphasised the importance of works on paper. The technical influence of his contemporaries and friends, William Gillies and Anne Redpath can be seen in this bold pen ink and watercolour depicting the Grand Canal, gondolas and pleasure boats. Wilson is known for three distinct areas of production: his brilliant early etchings and engravings, his fresh, breezy watercolours and a significant body of stained-glass design
