Art print reproduction of Still Life with Teapot on Round Table by Anne Redpath, part of the National Galleries of Scotland collection. This art print is a beautifully presented image with a white border. Printed in high-quality 240gsm smooth matt paper with light, fine-grain surface texture.
This still life was painted in Redpath's home in Hawick. It was described by a reporter in 1947: 'Immediately on entering her sitting room I felt as though I had stepped into one of her pictures…’ The familiarity and the simplicity of home life is evident in many of Redpath’s paintings. Each still life is a snapshot of her life depicted in a beautiful pastel palette conveying not only the interior of her home but her interior life as a prolific artist. Her artwork follows the tradition of painters like Matisse and Vuillard, conveying the intimate portrayals of her own domestic setting.
Anne Redpath was born in Galashiels and studied at Edinburgh College of Art. In 1920 she married and moved to France, devoting much of the next fourteen years to her family and doing little painting. In the mid-1930s she returned to Scotland, settling in Hawick in the Borders. Redpath admired the French Post-Impressionist artists, such as Van Gogh and Gauguin. From the 1950s, she became well known in the Scottish art world, specialising in landscapes, church interiors and still life painted in rich colours. Her work from the late 1950s responds to Abstract Expressionism in the free and expressive handling of paint.
