William Crighton studied at Jordanstone College and St. Martins School of Art. One of the most interesting post impressionist painters of recent years, his treatment of light and shade brought him to the notice of galleries in Europe. The dappled effect of the sunlight, the ease of the resting figures, the glistening of the surfaces of water are captured with broad sketch-like strokes of his brush. The enchantment of casual groupings, figures in light dresses, tables bathed in sunlight are his preferred subjects. For him art is a craft to be practiced joyfully.
For my part, I am content to demand just one thing for a masterpiece - Enjoyment.
