This book presents the first comprehensive survey of the work of Sylvia Wishart RSA (1936-2008).

From on of her earliest drawings to the late large-scale paintings, A Study charts Wishart's artistic achievement over more than fifty years, and establishes her place as an important and influential Scottish artist.

Describing her own aspirations for her life as 'having no ambition beyond painting on and finding out what comes', her drawings, paintings and prints express a distinct and singular approach to recording her subject and reveal a lifelong fascination with the ladnscape of her native Orkney.

The book contains over 100 illustrations, many published for the first time, drawn together from public and private collections from across Scotland and beyond.
