Wilhelmina Barns-Graham was one of Britain’s most significant 20th century modern artists. Scottish born and a prominent member of the post-war St Ives group, she was a sublime painter, draughtswoman, printmaker and a brilliant colourist. Dividing her time between studios in St Ives and St Andrews she followed a consistent artistic vision throughout her sixty-five-year career. Her work is held in all major UK public collections.
Scottish and St Ives based artist Wilhelmina Barns-Graham, CBE (1912-2004), established the Trust in 1987. Through exhibitions, publications and online resources, it aims to promote and broaden the understanding and reputation of her work as one of Britain’s most significant 20th century artists. The Trust actively supports individuals to fulfil their potential in the visual arts by providing financial support in education and funding artists’ residencies.
