Description:

Artist's statement:

The girl in red was painted int he 'life' room at the original Gray's School of Art, Schoolhill, Aberdeen. Her legs were really purplish red from 'hugging' a coal fire during the cold winter months - a common sight in those far off days of the late 1950s. I have lived in Geneva, Switzerland since 1961.
