Colin Haining, On a Western Isle

The Artist and  Work of Art

Colin Haining On a Western Isle

Very little is known about the artist and print-maker,  Colin Haining,  other than he was active in the 1970s as an artist.  The work itself is a limited edition screenprint  and one of twelve produced. It depicts a harbour scene typical of those on the western side of Scotland. It shows the crab and lobster baskets in the foreground and the fishermen's cottages in the background. It is a colourful and delightful image.  Although created in  1977, the  view of harbours in this part of the world has changed very little and such images  are often nostalgic.
