Catalogue Note

“Being equally sensitive to the spells of time and of space, to a tract of years and a tract of landscape, I tried to discover the historical moment which best interpreted the ethos of a particular countryside, and to devise the appropriate legend.”

John Buchan, Janet Adam Smith, John Buchan and his World, 1979

 

“It’s marvellously clear this quote. I sympathise. It is deduction: Buchan’s historical moment, for me is induced or suggested by landscape and its ethos. The ethos is the history. It’s the ethos I try to paint.”

Michael Andrews, referring to the above quote, as quoted in “Strange Consolation: The Art of Michael Andrews,” in Exh. Cat., London, Tate Britain, Michael Andrews, 1993, p. 35
