The Eduardo Alessandro Studios featured exhibition for April is a retrospective exhibition looking back at the work of Kincardineshire based painter Lil Neilson who died 20 years ago at the age of 60.
Lil Neilson- Remembering a Catterline Artist, is an intimate collection of work brought together over many years by close friends of the artist, and being offered for sale for the first time.
Lil studied at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art from 1956-60, including a summer school at Hospitalfield House, Arbroath. She completed a post-diploma year tutored by Hugh Crawford and Alberto Morrocco in 1960-61 and was awarded a travelling scholarship to France and Italy in 1961-62, before being drawn to the coastal village of Catterline near Stonehaven through her association with Joan Eardley.
The exhibition features examples of her early Eardley influenced works through to the powerful introspective pieces produced in her final years.
