Landscape Near Hunter's Tryst
Born at Yoker on the Clyde, William Crozier studied at Glasgow School of Art from 1949-53 before working for two years as a theatre designer. He has taught at Bath Academy of Art and the Central School of Art, London, and was Head of Fine Art at Winchester until 1987. From the 1950s to around 1980 he worked within an abstract idiom loosely based on landscape motifs, but during the 1980s he has moved towards more easily recognisable depictions of landscape. Between 1955 and 1965, he spent prolonged periods in Dublin, Paris and Malaga and was based in Ireland until his death in July 2011 aged 81.
