Ian Cheyne was born in Dundee in 1895 and was educated at Glasgow Academy and then studied at Glasgow School of Art. Originally a painter, he began to experiment with colour woodcuts of Scottish, Spanish and French landscapes and these became his prime interest. In his woodcuts, Cheyne’s use of flat planes and curved forms gives his work an Art Deco feel. Cheyne exhibited regularly at the Royal Scottish Academy from 1920 until the end of his life.

This design was issued in an edition o...

This is one of the most popular subjects and was probably produced as a souvenir (jatri pati) for pilgrims for whom the painting would become a personal family shrine. The paint...
