Painter. Religious subjects, portraits, landscapes, still-lifes.

London Group.

Craigie Aitchison studied at the Slade School of Fine Art in London from 1952 to 1954. In 1955 he was awarded a British Council scholarship and travelled to Italy, where he was affected by the light and landscapes of that country and by early Italian art.

Aitchison's subjects have included the Isle of Arran and his farmhouse near Siena, with his use of colour becoming more vibrant and lyrical as his work developed. A favourite religious subject is the Crucifixion which, like the artists of the Italian Renaissance, he sets in the landscapes that surround him. In ...
