Anne Redpath grew up in Scotland but moved to France. She returned to Scotland in 1934, where she started sketching the villages and coastal scenes. She is known for her use of flattened perspectives, inspired by art from East Asia and the influence this had on previous generations of Modernist painters. Here she has used this idea to create the jewel-like effect of white Scottish crofts in the dark landscapes of the Scottish Islands.
