The painter and printmaker Craigie Aitchison is best known for his sparse compositions and intense, luminous palette. His subject matter is equally distinctive - landscapes, single flowers, Bedlington terriers, sheep and crucifixions. Aitchison initially studied Law at Edinburgh University before attending the Slade School of Fine Art, London, from 1952 - 1954. In 1955 he travelled to Italy on a British Council scholarship where he was strongly influenced by many of the paintings he saw there. He was elected a Royal Academician in 1988 and 1999 he was awarded a CBE for his contribution to British Art.
