Douglas Wilson

Elected RCA 1984

Born in 1936. Wilson's career as a distinctive landscape artist, coincided with the founding of The Brotherhood of Realists. His polished, sophisticated works are masterful in their technique. His paintings of his adopted place of Shropshire and the Welsh borders, indicate a yearning for a vanishing world. Soft, warm, light, lowering skies, an idiosyncratic perspective of looming plants, the promise of a home on the road, are intrinsic components.
