Between America and the Borders: William Johnstone’s Landscape Painting

2017

Abstract

Scottish artist William Johnstone lived and worked in America for periods in the 1920s and 1940s, encountering a very different landscape to that he had grown up with in the Scottish Borders. This article investigates how Johnstone’s landscape paintings might be understood firstly as abstracted from nature and the Scottish landscape to which he felt so connected, and secondly in dialogue with the American landscape and culture he experienced during his visits.
