Simon Carter

Quay House II

Simon Carter is a painter with edge, whose abstracted images of his native East Anglia reflect the constantly shifting boundaries of land and sea. Noted for his industry, invention and engagement with the painterly surfaces of John Constable—his famous East Anglian artistic predecessor—Carter has already been championed by Maggi Hambling, George Melly and Gary Hume and shown at a variety of London venues. His first solo show at Messum’s offers the opportunity to bask in the brilliant colour and dynamic surfaces of a singular talent.

Art Sake Artfor forCharity's Charity's Sake De'Longhi with De'Longhipartners partners with MacMillan Cancer Support Macmillan Cancer Support

On 29 September this year the third annual Macmillan De'Longhi Art Auction will once again make its mark as a key event on London's art and social calendar in September. The auction, taking place in central London, will see pieces of modern art go under the hammer, with all proceeds going directly to Macmillan Cancer Support to help people whose lives are affected by cancer. Over the past two years the event has attracted donations from high profile artists including Damien Hirst, Alison Jackson, Mary McCartney, Gavin Turk, Sir Peter Blake, Norman Ackroyd, Tracey Emin and Maggie Hambling, to name a few. "The aim of the Macmillan De'Longhi Art Auction is not only to raise funds but also increase the awareness of Macmillan as a source of support and a force for change," said Nigel Wainwright, Managing Director of De'Longhi UK. "Over the past two years we have raised a significant amount for the charity and it is a pleasure to work with artists who are prepared to donate their time for such a worthy cause."

Launch of the 'Free Entry by 2012' Campaign, May 2009

The Financial Times recently described Pallant House Gallery as "continu[ing] to wave the flag for British art, with a knack for interesting reappraisals". But we are aware that too often, British refers only to English. This season 'The Scottish Colourists: Paintings from The Fleming Collection' and 'Scottish Women Printmakers: From Blackadder to Borland' seek to redress that imbalance: Keeper of Art at The Fleming Collection, Selina Skipwith introduces the Colourists on page 16, while Simon Martin speaks to Christine Borland, one of the artists whose work features in the De'Longhi Print Room show, on page 20.

Being truly representative also means being truly inclusive and 'Outside In' reflects this. A unique open art exhibition, it seeks to bring work by outsider and marginalised artists to a wider public. Marc Steene guides us through the groundbreaking project on page 24, while Jon Adams, himself an outsider artist who will exhibit here later in the season, intervenes in these pages as a precursor to his show 'The Goose on the Hill'.

particularly the acclaimed Eye-Music exhibition in 2007 – has been immense and she will be greatly missed. We wish her the very best in her new post. It has long been a dream to offer free admission to the Collection, and it has taken many years to be at a point where this might be possible. The Gallery took the first step towards this in May by launching the 'Free Entry by 2012' campaign which aims to raise £4 million to cover the current income from admission fees. But there is a long way to go and a lot of work to do. If you are interested in contributing to this campaign – which will be a legacy to Chichester and the UK in that Olympic year – please contact the Head of Development, Elaine Bentley, at e.bentley@pallant.org.uk. Finally, a tremendously exciting way for everyone to help the Gallery is by taking part in the new Pallant House Gallery Art Raffle. Tickets are just £2 each, and prizes include original artworks by Antony Gormley, Gavin Turk and other major names in the British art world. For a full list of those who have generously donated artworks, turn to page 33.

I would also like to make mention of the departure of the Head of Curatorial Services, Frances Guy, who will leave the Gallery after eleven years to take up the post of Head of Collections and Exhibitions at The Hepworth, Wakefield. Frances' contribution, not least in terms of the significant programme of exhibitions at the Gallery – 9

Outside In: Biennial Competition 4 August–8 November 2009 Since the early 20th Century, the terms 'Art Brut' or 'Outsider Art' have described those who produce art from the edges of society. This groundbreaking open entry arts prize, held across the South of England, highlights the work of artists who might otherwise have little or no contact with the institutions of the mainstream art world, and invites debate on the often overlooked subject of Outsider Art.

Hussey's 100 Until 11 October 2009 Celebrating the centenary of the birth of Walter Hussey, the Dean of Chichester Cathedral from 1955 to 1977, who was an extraordinary patron of art and music, private collector, and founder of Pallant House Gallery. Including works by Henry Moore, Graham Sutherland, John Piper, Duncan Grant, Rembrandt and Picasso. Andrew Hood, Self Portrait

Modern British Art: The First 100 Years Ongoing/Permanent Pallant House Gallery holds one of the best collections of 20th century British art in the world, including important works by Andrews, Auerbach, Blake, Bomberg, Caulfield, Freud, Hamilton, Hodgkin, Nicholson, Moore, Paolozzi, Piper, Sickert and Sutherland, shown throughout the Gallery.

Contemporary Eye: Material Matters Until 26 July 2009 Introducing key pieces from major private collections including works by Sarah Lucas, Angus Fairhurst, Langlands & Bell, WOKmedia (until March 2010) and James Turrell, Contemporary Eye: Material Matters is the first in a three year programme of interventions co-curated by the Londonbased collective Artwise, examining the challenges posed by the different mediums used in contemporary art.

Forthcoming Exhibitions Scottie Wilson 4 August–11 October 2009 An exhibition drawn from the Pallant House Gallery collection featuring the highly distinctive drawings of the Scottish outsider artist Scottie Wilson (1891–1972). Starting his artistic career at the age of 44, his work was admired and collected by the likes of Jean Dubuffet and Pablo Picasso and he is considered to be one of the most celebrated outsider artists of the twentieth century.

Henry Moore Textiles 14 November 2009–21 February 2010 Best known for his large scale reclining figures and war time sketches of London underground shelters, Henry Moore also produced remarkable designs for textiles and fabrics shortly after the Second World War. This exhibition, curated by the Henry Moore Foundation, brings together the many works which Moore designed for fabric, including the curtains and bedspreads which adorned his own home at Hoglands.

Jon Adams: The Goose on the Hill 13 October–22 November 2009 A solo show by Portsmouth-based artist Jon Adams marking the culmination of his year- long project as artist in residence for Southern Rail.

New acquisitions of Burra, Collins, Bawden & Nash This spring, the Gallery has been presented with a group of works as part of the Dennis Andrews and Christopher Whelen Gift. These include two prints by Edward Burra, a rare early Paul Nash engraving entitled 'The Pond' (1925), an iconic Edward Bawden wallpaper design 'Sahara' (1928), two prints by the English visionary Cecil Collins entitled 'Treading Blind' (1942) and 'Angel' (1977) and an etching by the French Cubist artist Louis Marcoussis entitled 'L'Orage- Figure Epuise.'

Golder- Thompson Gift This year, the purchase of contemporary prints through the Golder-Thompson Gift has focussed on Scottish women printmakers including newly acquired prints by Anne Bevan, Katy Dove, Jo Ganter, Gwen Hardie, Jessica Harrison, Louise Hopkins, Rosalind Lawless, Natalie McIlroy, Jennifer McRae, Nicola Murray and Barbara Rae. Further prints have been donated by Mark Golder and Brian Thompson: 'Five Bathers' (1998) from Arturo Di Stefano's 'Strands' series; 'Vigilant Dreamer' (2005) by Andrzej Jackowski, 'Bridge' by Philip Reeves the founder of the Glasgow Print Studio and a portfolio of woodcuts by Emma Stibbon entitled 'Firn' (2008).

Paolozzi in the Restaurant A selection of serigraph prints by Eduardo Paolozzi will go on show in the restaurant to coincide with the exhibition of the Scottish Colourists. The prints, from his portfolio 'Moonstrips Empire News' (1967) merge strong graphic designs with an iconography derived from comic books and the mass media, highlighting Paolozzi's fascination with popular culture, technology and American consumerism. Unrelated images such as Mickey Mouse and the head of Michelangelo's David are brought together to demonstrate what the artist called the "schizophrenic quality" of modern life.

Artworks on tour In the coming months Barbara Hepworth's 'Single Form, Nocturne' (1968) will be loaned to Tate St Ives (until 27 September); Susie MacMurray's 'Gladrags' to the exhibition 'Dress Codes: Clothing as Metaphor' at the Katonah Museum of Art, NY, USA (12 July–4 October 2009); Frank Auerbach's 'Oxford Street Building Site' (1960) to the Courtauld Gallery exhibition 'Frank Auerbach: London Building Sites 1952-62' (15 October 2009–17 January 2010) and Jann Haworth's 'Cowboy' and 'Mae West' to Wolverhampton City Art Gallery (1 October 2009–1 April 2010).

The Scottish Colourists: Paintings from The Fleming Collection Selina Skipwith

Keeper of Art at the Fleming Collection, Selina Skipwith introduces the four artists known as the Scottish Colourists, and describes how some key examples of their work have come to reside within one of the most important collections of Scottish art in the country.

The artists now known as the Scottish Colourists, Samuel John Peploe (1871–1935), Francis Campbell Boileau Cadell (1883–1937), George Leslie Hunter (1877–1931) and John Duncan Fergusson (1874–1961), have in the past thirty years excited more interest than they ever did during their lifetimes. They have been recognised as key players in the introduction of modern art to Britain, and among the most forwardthinking British artists of the early 20th century. The Colourists did not develop as a group, but pursued independent careers; indeed, the descriptive name was not coined until 1948, when only Fergusson was still alive. Although the four exhibited together only three times during their lifetimes, the name has now been widely accepted as the title for a group of artists who, following in the footsteps of their predecessors, the Glasgow Boys, assimilated contemporary developments in continental art and brought a new approach to painting in Great Britain.

France figured largely in their lives. All were attracted by the lively artistic life of Paris, spending varying periods there. Peploe and Fergusson studied in Paris in the 1890s, returning there regularly throughout their early careers, settling for a time in the French capital where they were part of the community of international artists known as the School of Paris. Between 1909-1912 Fergusson and Peploe were leading members of the Anglo-Saxon group of 17


Fauvistes based in Paris and were on friendly terms with many of the avant-garde artists there, including the young Picasso. On their return to Britain before the First World War, they were undeniably among the most advanced British artists of their time and ready to develop their mature individual styles. Hunter and Cadell, also spent their formative years abroad. Hunter grew up in California and began his life as an artist in the bohemian San Francisco artistic community. Working as an illustrator he was first and foremost a draughtsman, learning the skills of his trade from fellow members of the Californian Society of Artists. Hunter first visited Paris in 1904 and settled back in Scotland in 1907, his interests varied widely, from 17th-century Dutch and Flemish Old Masters through Chardin to Cézanne, Chabaud and Braque. Cadell was first encouraged to become an artist by a friend of his parents, the celebrated Scottish watercolourist, Arthur Melville. Cadell, like Fergusson and Peploe, came from a middle-class Edinburgh background and, like the other Colourists, studied art abroad, first in Paris and then in Munich, where his family was living between 1906 and 1908. Visiting London and Paris regularly and spending time on the Côte d’Azur, where most of the avantgarde artists who had settled in Paris in the early 20th century had moved, the Colourists were more aware than most British artists of the latest developments in art, a fact reflected in their work. The Fleming Collection, from which this exhibition is drawn, began life in 1968 as a handful of paintings bought to decorate the empty office walls of the London merchant bank, Robert Fleming & Co. Ltd. Today it is widely regarded as the finest collection of Scottish art in private hands, comprising paintings, watercolours, drawings and prints from 1770 to the present day. The Collection was sold in April 2000 to The Fleming-Wyfold Art Foundation; a new charitable foundation endowed by the Fleming Family and opened a gallery in Berkeley Street The original collector for the company was David Donald, an Aberdonian who had joined Flemings in 1960 from Shepherd & Wedderburn in Edinburgh. He suggested to his fellow directors that perhaps one or two paintings would relieve the stark bareness of the walls in the new office. The idea was enthusiastically received by his colleagues and David, a Writer to 18

the Signet turned investment manager, who had a life-long enthusiasm for art, was asked to buy a few paintings. The only guidelines were that in view of the company’s Scottish origins – Robert Fleming was born in Dundee in 1845 – the works should be by Scottish artists or of Scottish scenes by any artist. Apart from this he was given a free hand. For eighteen years until his death in 1985 David acted as a committee of one, using his special blend of flair and wit to build up a fine collection of Scottish art. Until about 1980 Scottish art was very under-rated in terms of British art. Collectors outside Scotland were relatively few and prices reflected this. David Donald was able to buy quality paintings by the Scottish Colourists for sums which today seem very low. By the early 1980s, however, Scottish painting was becoming better known beyond the boundaries of Scotland. Prices increased rapidly, particularly for works by the Colourists, who were taken up by a number of London dealers. Before 1970 paintings could be bought for hundreds of pounds by the late 1970s a good Peploe could be purchased for about £5000. In 1988 Peploe’s Girl in White sold at Christie’s in Glasgow for £506,000, then a world record for the artist which was not broken in auction until 2001 when Peploe’s 1905 still life, The Black Bottle, was sold at Christie’s in Edinburgh. It is significant that the collection has purchased only one Colourist oil during the last thirty years – Cadell’s The Feathered Hat acquired by my predecessor, Bill Smith, in 1992. The Fleming-Wyfold Art Foundation is delighted to have this opportunity to exhibit our entire Colourist collection at Pallant House Gallery and hope it brings as much enjoyment to visitors as it does to us. Exhibition The Scottish Colourists: Paintings from The Fleming Collection 27 June–1 November 2009 Talk Peploe and the Scottish Colourists Thursday 23 July, 6pm For more information, see page 42

Prints from Scotland Christine Borland

One of the group of Scottish women printmakers whose work has been selected to feature in this season's De'Longhi Print Room show, Christine Borland talks to Assistant Curator Simon Martin about her position within a trajectory of Scottish women artists and how printmaking offers up the opportunity to explore much more than just a nationality.

Simon Martin As a gallery of Modern British art, Pallant House Gallery collects and shows work from across the British Isles. You were born in Ayrshire and studied at the Universities of Ulster and Glasgow, and currently live in Scotland. Do you see yourself as a 'Scottish' artist? Christine Borland There is not really a particular sense of national identity to my work, though each of the locations you mention has had an influence that comes out in different ways. The strongest when I was studying in Belfast for my MA during the Troubles. I was affected by the political situation as a person of course, but the fact of being Scottish and therefore the same nationality as the occupying troops made me aware of my national identity for the first time. Otherwise the nature and landscapes of Scotland influence me in terms of living in rural areas, and the Scottish Enlightenment interest in medicine has been important to my work, but there is no overwhelming national trait to my work. SM We are showing the work of living Scottish women printmakers alongside the Scottish Colourists exhibition. How do you see yourself in relation to the 'canon' of Scottish artists from Cadell and Fergusson through to figures such as Barbara Rae?

Christine Borland, The Quickening (Detail) Pallant House Gallery (Golder-Thompson Gift, 2004) Š The Artist

CB I have always been aware of them since visiting museums as a child but very early on my concerns 21


came to be much more sculptural. If I had to put myself in a tradition at all it would be a much more recent conceptual tradition including Ian Hamilton Finlay and Alan Johnston. So I am aware of it and have enjoyed it, but I have not particularly identified with it.

about whether I was doing the right thing being on a shooting range when pregnant. My feelings then were very complex. I was trying to sort out my own feelings about my own identity, feelings of guilt which did not always go away. It was really quite personal.

SM You were a nominee in the 1997 'all women' Turner Prize shortlist and, of course are included in the current exhibition of Scottish Women Printmakers at Pallant House Gallery. How do you feel about being included in such gender-specific shows?

SM You have created a number of prints besides 'The Quickening' at the Glasgow Print Studio. How do you see printmaking in relation to your installations and other work?

CB Well, the Turner prize was different as although it was an all women show that year, it is normally mixed or even all male. In that particular year I felt that it was more of a happy accident, and that the line-up was representative of current art rather than being a political statement. Generally, though, I feel quite ambivalent about that sort of gender-specific approach. In my opinion they are generally invented to illustrate a particular point in terms of an institution or a curator for a certain show. I don't take it that seriously. SM The exhibition includes a screenprint by you entitled 'The Quickening.' This print of a woman seemingly shooting her mirror image appears outwardly aggressive, but I wonder whether it is addressing moral issues surrounding the fragility of human life. What were your ideas behind this work? CB It is always difficult to sum up and, in a way, the process of making a work is to open out these things, not to pin them down. This particular work came from taking photographs of a shooting range in Paris, while remaking an old piece for an exhibition. The situation was different from the UK, where it had become difficult to access shooting ranges after the law was changed following the Dunblane massacre. I was pregnant when I made the work and began documenting the process, so I had to make a lot of negotiations to get access. 'The quickening' is an old-fashioned term which was used to describe the time period when the movements of the baby are first felt – usually during the first four to five months. I had lots of strange and contradictory feelings at that time

CB Conceptually, print-making fits with a lot of the rest of my work. I have done a lot of work investigating what is 'original', particularly in relation to genetics and identity from a medical point of view, and there are many similar features such as reproduction and repetition which are inherent in the printmaking process. As a medium it is very valuable and has a lot of historical reference points such as medical or anatomical drawings – the history of printmaking is in parallel with these. Although I have done engraving, for nearly all my recent prints I have worked with a print technician for the editioning. I have worked with Glasgow Print Studio, but also Dundee Visual Arts and other printmaking studios. SM Your work has often explored the nexus between art and science – particularly the history of medicine and forensic science. What has led you to explore these subjects in your work? CB It is always hard to pinpoint an exact starting point. Early on at art school I developed an interest in the human body and I wanted to try to find a non-traditional way of representing it that was not direct portraiture. I began to look at the collections in Glasgow, among which the most important for me was the Hunterian Museum's anatomy collection. I was fascinated by medicalised representations of the body, and by exploring the body in relation to identity, and exploring fundamental life and death questions from an artist's perspective.

Bringing the Outside In Marc Steene

This August sees the return of Outside In to Pallant House Gallery. Throughout the month visitors will be able see the work of marginalised and outsider artists from across the South of England displayed prominently in three of the Gallery's main spaces. While the previous exhibition (in 2007) focused solely on artists living in Sussex, this time the net has been cast much further, taking in the whole of the Southern region from Cornwall to Kent. Selected work will be judged and six awards will offer artists the opportunity to have either a residency or a solo exhibition at Pallant House Gallery. Alongside the main exhibition Outside In has developed a number of additional strands of work that allows the project to reach out to a much larger audience. A dedicated website was launched earlier this year and artists wishing to enter work can upload their work directly to the site. There is also an online gallery sharing research and showing and selling work by marginalised artists. Partnerships have been developed with several high profile arts organisations in the region including the Arnolfini, Bristol, Dartington College, Newlyn Art Gallery, Hastings Museum and Art Gallery, Bethlem Gallery and Salisbury Arts Centre. A further part of the project has been the development of a series of workshops across the region led by marginalised artists who have been newly trained as workshop leaders under a scheme called Step Up.

A series of events will also go some way to help challenge and raise debate regarding marginalised and outsider artists. There is a film programme in partnership with the New Park Cinema Festival featuring films that have a focus on outsider art and artists. There are two scheduled talks one by renowned self-taught artist Chris Hipkiss in conversation with collector Rose Knox Peebles and another by French artist Gilles Ganachaud who will be looking at the work of Raymond Isidore the artist who created Picassiette in Chartres, France. The Outside In exhibition will take place for three months between August and November, and during this time Pallant House Gallery will take on a distinct outsider art focus. An exhibition profiling the work of famous outsider artist Scottie Wilson will take place in the Print Room and there will be a Gallery trail and tours focusing on five outsider and marginalised artists in the Gallery's collection. Why is Outside In important to you? One of the most important functions of the project is to showcase unique and unheard voices. In the past, if these voices did emerge it was only by accident or chance like Ben Nicholson discovering Alfred Wallis. Outside In is all about creating those opportunities by offering a safe space for artists to show their work. This means that the project also

has a responsibility to the participants. As soon as you start interacting with the art world especially in a commercial sense you have to be careful as, due to the nature of the project, a lot of the people involved can be very fragile. Also you don’t want to lose their unique voices, or stop the process being about enjoyment for the people involved. Best bits? For me the best thing about the project is always the unknown factor, finding all those people who are out there making and creating who may be excluded by a barrier of some sort and have no profile or acknowledgement. In 2007, about two thirds of the entrants were known to the Gallery and about a third were unknown, and it is that unknown quantity that makes the project so interesting. This year the nature and scale of the project means that we will expect a broader range of artists who will have lots of different reasons for their involvement. What can visitors expect to see? We are seeing such a diversity of processes and techniques, all sorts of new and unique ways of making work – and a capacity for the unconventional. Many of the artists draw from personal experiences, unique world views or imaginary landscapes that provides for a unique opportunity to see a range of artists and art that has mostly never been seen before and never in this context. Tell me about the film festival? We have always wanted to give Outside In more of a festival-feel by opening it up to other art forms and film seemed an obvious first choice as there are so many extremely good films about outsider art. Also we have been working with the film director Justin Edgar recently on making a documentary film for Partners in Art, and when I found out that Roger Gibson [of New Park Cinema] was planning to screen Edgar's feature film 'Special People' I broached him about having an outsider festival. The selection of films will be very wide-ranging from quite mainstream films like 'Junebug' to a film about the work of Henry Darger which I think is absolutely stunning. It should provide another way into the project for people who might be initially struggling with the artwork, and hopefully help challenge the preconceptions of a broader audience.

What else is new this year? The Step Up Trail is part of a new strand of the project which we started this year to help offer further opportunities to marginalised artists through skill sharing. We trained five marginalised artists to lead workshops and asked them to join in with us on a consultative body researching into the collections at Pallant House Gallery and the impact and stories of outsider and marginalised artists. This has fed back into a wider research project into outsider art by the Gallery librarian and a series of tours, workshop packs and a trail have come out of that work. Where will you go from here? In 2011, we hope to make the project officially nation-wide and will be working much more regionally, holding several exhibitions in different Galleries across the UK. This year's exhibition will also be travelling to some of the partner organisations after the display at Pallant House Gallery. www.outsidein.org.uk Exhibitions Outside In: Biennial Competition 4 August–8 November 2009 Scottie Wilson 4 August–11 October 2009 Gallery Trail Step Up 4 August–8 November Talks Chris Hipkiss in conversation with Rose Knox-Peebles Thursday 24 September, 6pm Picassiette Thursday 1 October, 6.15pm Tours Outsider Artists from the Collection 3 September and 17 September, 6pm Screenings Chichester International Film Festival New Park Cinema, Chichester 20 August–6 September For booking details please see pages 42–47.

Gino Severini, Danseuse No.5 (Dancer No. 5)

Futurism is 100 Even the most avant-garde movements reach a point where they become the 'Old Masters' and it is now a century since the Italian poet Filippo Tommaso Marinetti launched the Futurist Manifesto in 1909. These once-radical Futurist artists rejected the old, celebrating speed and dynamism and describing Italy's museums as 'countless cemeteries.' A major exhibition arrives at Tate Modern this summer, fresh from the Centre Pompidou in Paris and the Quirinale in Rome, but don't forget that you can see one of the most celebrated examples of Futurist art in Britain at Pallant House Gallery: Gino Severini's 'Danseuse No.5'.

Win a Gormley for £2 In these uncertain times there is now a new way to support Gallery funding. The Pallant House Gallery Art Raffle 2009 invites everyone to be in with a chance of winning an artwork by a major British artist for as little as £2 per single ticket. Friends will receive a book of tickets in the post with this magazine, and more are available from the Gallery. Prizes include works generously donated by artists Sarah Armstrong Jones, Peter Blake, Paul Catherall, Antony Gormley, Lee Miller (donated by Antony Penrose), Lord Snowdon, Gavin Turk and others. Look out for images of the prizes to be displayed in the lead up to the draw on 3 December 2009.

BOOKSHOP

Pat Douthwaite 1934*–2002 Introduction by Guy Peploe (The Scottish Gallery, 2005) Pat Douthwaite was born in Glasgow in the 1930s. She first used dance, and later her art as a means of expressing a personal freedom and bohemian spirit that was to eventually retreat into self doubt and fragile mental and physical health. Largely self-taught, she was temperamentally unsuited to (and indeed, seemingly unconcerned with) seeking a place in the art establishment or conforming to the whims of the commercial market, becoming associated with Outsider Artists, something she was comfortable with, and which became more pertinent as her life grew increasingly nomadic and rootless after the breakdown of her marriage to the artist Paul Hogarth.

Peter Blake: One Man Show By Marco Livingstone (Ashgate, 2009) £35 Also available: limited edition with print, £500 This new publication offers an extensive, up-todate appraisal of Blake’s artistic endeavours. Marco Livingstone, long time friend of the artist and expert on Pop Art, takes the reader through Blake’s career and explores his work in all media, from collage, sculpture, graphics and prints to painting. Both his experimental works and his more commercial works are studied, revealing the combination of inventiveness and aesthetic charm that has enabled Blake’s unique style to gain mass appeal. The special slipcase edition of One Man Show (limited to 100 copies) also contains a new screenprint, Roxy 2, produced by the artist to celebrate the release of this book. Megan Mikel

However, unlike many Outsider Artists her work has been widely shown by major commercial galleries. This catalogue from the Scottish Gallery, Edinburgh, was produced on the occasion of a memorial exhibition following her death in 2002 and reveals what a unique talent Douthwaite was. Her work can be uncompromising, disquieting and dark; and yet at other times tender and lighthearted and her parade of characters glow with a soft, velvety colour and elegance of form. A perceptive and informative introduction by Guy Peploe, together with intimate photographs by her son Toby Hogarth reveal the 'alluring outsider' as one of the true originals of Scottish art. * Please note there is some discrepancy over Douthwaite's actual birth date * The death certificate records it as 28 July, 1939.

Sarah Norris

Winifred Nicholson By Christopher Andreae (Ashgate, 2009) £35 Best remembered for her flower and landscape paintings, Winifred Nicholson’s beautiful works are at once sensitive and full of light and life. Throughout her 60 year artistic career Nicholson travelled frequently and took inspiration from the different surroundings and atmospheric conditions she experienced, both in Britain and abroad. Water, light and colour had a tremendous influence on her style. This new book provides an overview of her life and works and recognizes her importance as a female modern British artist. Megan Mikel

Chairman of the Friends' Letter Lady Nicholas Gordon Lennox

On May 16 we had the second of our free entry days for 2009 at the Gallery and we used this occasion to launch the 'Free Entry by 2012' appeal. As you will all know, the majority of art galleries in Britain do not charge for entry and it has been our long term aim to achieve this at Pallant House Gallery. For the present, we cannot afford this but our new appeal to raise ÂŁ4 million by 2012 could make this possible for the future. This would be free entry to the permanent collection not to the special exhibitions for which we would have to charge.

Also on May 16 the Friends launched the Pallant House Gallery Art Raffle for which we have been generously given art work by amongst others Antony Gormley, Sarah Armstrong-Jones, Peter Blake, Paul Catherall, John Hubbard, Lee Miller, Lord Snowdon and Gavin Turk as prizes. This raffle will run until 3 December when the draw will take place. Enclosed with this magazine is a book of raffle tickets with a donation form attached. If you would like additional books please contact the Friends Office.

Scottie Wilson Gillian Birtchnell

At the end of the First World War, he left the army and moved to Canada, changing his name to Scottie Wilson. He opened a small junk shop in Toronto and it was in the back of this shop, on a card-table covered in cardboard, that Wilson discovered his compulsion for drawing. One of the items in the shop was a particularly fine pen which he had been reluctant to part with. Looking at it one day, he picked it up and started to draw on the cardboard. Soon the table-top was covered in his ink drawings. Finding that he couldn’t stop, he purchased drawing paper and children’s crayons from Woolworths and continued to develop his drawing, producing pictures to hang on the walls and display in the window. Returning to London in 1945 gave Wilson the opportunity to exhibit his work at the Arcade Gallery, where many established artists had exhibited. This show led to his inclusion in a group exhibition on Surrealism in Paris. Jean Dubuffet became a collector of his work and he was invited 56

Scottie Wilson, Untitled (Self-Portrait)

to France, where he met up with Dubuffet and, at the same time, was introduced to Picasso who also admired his work. With his work being appreciated and promoted by such influential artists, Wilson was able to make a living from his artwork. Throughout his career as an artist Wilson used pen and ink as a basis for his drawings, along with coloured crayons, watercolour and coloured inks on paper or card. He enjoyed telling stories and often gave different accounts of events in his life. The imaginative subjects that he used in his drawings were based on birds, fish, trees, flowers, heads and faces and included characters he called ‘Evils and Greedies’ who were placed alongside symbols for goodness and truth. This extract has been taken from ‘Step Up’, the Outsider and Marginalised workshop pack produced by Pallant House Gallery. For more information, please contact Marc Steene, Head of Learning on m.steene@pallant.org.uk

Scottie Wilson (1890s–1972) was born Louis Freeman in Scotland. His father was from Jewish descent and, on emigrating from Lithuania to Britain, had changed the family surname to Freeman before settling in Glasgow. A childhood in poverty led to Wilson leaving school at an early age and taking up market trading. In 1906 he became a soldier in the Scottish Rifles, serving in India and South Africa.
