Wingate, Katherine Hill

Katherine Hill Wingate (ex.1916-1920) studied under Arthur Melville. "She is modern but not too modern and one feels free to discuss the work of Turner, Maris and McTaggart when looking at some of her work" - Glasgow Evening Herald. Wingate painted seascapes of Arran and Ayrshire coast.


Few of her works remaim, however this seascape, a superb, circa 1915, Scottish impressionist oil on canvas depicts Arran and shows influences of the Scottish impressionists such as McTaggart. Exhibited at McClures Gallery in 1916.
