The artist and printmaker Alan Davie has died at the age of 93. From the Art in Scotland archives, this interview between Davie and Patrick Elliot explores the retrospective exhibition of his work that was on at the Scottish National Museum of Modern Art.
Alan Davie was a Scottish painter and musician. He was born in Grangemouth to a painter and etcher father, so it was no surprise Davie himself would follow a similar educational path. Davie was a prolific painter and produced many works exploring myths and symbolism, in a style that was unmistakably his.
