Take another look 2

Everytime I see or hear a referenc to Wilhelmina Barns-Graham I think I must take a closer look and I always forget. Today I received an e-mail from the porthminstergallery  who have some of her work for sale.
They say:

'Wilhelmina Barns-Graham was one of the foremost painters working in St Ives after moving there in 1940. Her paintings, alongside those of her contemporaries that comprise the St Ives school, contributed greatly to the development of Modernist British painting in the mid to late twentieth century. Since 1960 she divided her time between her homes in St Ives and St Andrews, affirming herself as much a Scottish as Cornish artist.'

Text from The Barns-Graham Charitable Trust.

This is one of the pieces that I really liked:
