[edit] Information

Anne Redpath (1895 - 1965) Born in Galashiels, Anne Redpath studied at Edinburgh College of Art and Moray House from 1913, qualifying as an art teacher in 1917. She married in 1920 and settled in France, painting little until returning to Edinburgh in 1934. Despite almost giving up painting at the start of her career, she went on to produce a superb body of work which was both popular with the public and acclaimed by critics. Redpath was an intriguing and complex character. Although she had a strict congregationalist upbringing in the Scottish Borders, she developed a passion for Catholic architecture and ornament. She travelled the world and had a weakness for Parisian couture, yet she remained a committed Scot with strong left-wing views. These dichotomies in her life were reflected in her work, which combines the sensual with the intellectual and the familiar with the exotic. Her paintings display an exceptional degree of individuality and masterly skill, and her use of colour and contrast, shadow and light confirm her standing as Scotland's greatest woman painter of the mid 20th century and arguably, one of Europe's finest artists. This film is the result of a long and fruitful relationship with BBC Scotland, and in particular producer Mhairi McNeill and director Eleanor Yule, who first put me on the road to arts documentaries and have been a constant support and inspiration ever since. Michael Palin, London, May 2008.
