Rhona Ramsay : Wilhelmina Barns-Graham

We talk to Rhona Ramsay, Research Curator, University of Stirling Art Collection about Wilhelmina Barns-Graham and the St Ives artists collection which is part of the University’s permanent collection.

Wilhelmina Barns-Graham (1912-2004) was one of the foremost painters working in St Ives after moving there in 1940. Her paintings, alongside those of her contemporaries that comprise the St Ives school, contributed greatly to the development of Modernist British painting in the mid to late twentieth century. Since 1960 she divided her time between her homes in St Ives and St Andrews, affirming herself as much a Scottish as Cornish artist.
