George Gilbert RSW is a hugely respected and influencial Scottish painter. As a still life painter he is second to none, and his depictions of Scottish - mainly East Coast - fishing villages and coastal towns perfectly capture the light and character of these historic places.
"I was born, grew up and was educated in Glasgow. I trained at Glasgow School of Art 1957-61 under William Armour & David Donaldson (1957 - 61) followed by a year of post graduate study (1961 - 62 (Highly commended). I then taught in schools in Aberdeenshire, Glasgow & Fife 1963-88. In 1989 I left teaching to paint full time. With my wife Lesley we set up the Courtyard Gallery in Crail 1993-2001. I have exhibited widely in the UK with many solo shows as well as group and mixed exhibitions including the RSW, RSA and the RGI, the Cleveland Drawing Competition, the Sunday Times Water Colour Competition & the RSW summer open".
