Picture in Focus: Cecile Walton

Exhibition assistant Kate Cowcher will give an introductory talk on Cecile Walton's self-portrait 'Romance' (1920)

To accompany the critically-acclaimed exhibition 'Divided Selves: The Scottish Self-Portrait from the 17th Century to the Present', we invite you to a series of short lunchtime talks each focusing on a single picture from the exhibition. This week Kate Cowcher will discuss Cecile Walton's iconic self-portrait 'Romance' (1920). Walton, the daughter of Glasgow Boy E.A. Walton and wife of the notorious Eric Robertson, was a member of the ‘Edinburgh Group’, who first exhibited in 1912 and rose to prominence after the First World War. She was a vocal supporter of the women's movement and actively engaged with the debate about a Scottish national school in the 1920s and 30s.
