Eemis Stane

Period:
20th Century
Description:

This print by Stuart MacFadzean is inspired by a poem of the same name by Hugh MacDiarmid in which the poet contemplates the earth moving unsteadily through space. MacDiarmid, whose signature has been found on the back of this print, was a leader of the Scottish Literary Renaissance which began during the first half of the 20th century. MacDiarmid sought to revive the use of the Scots language.

 

This print has been made with procion dyes. These were originally developed for use with textiles and produce very intense colours.

 

Eemis Stane won first prize in the Colquhoun Competition in 1975.
