Frances Walker

June 1, 2016

We are thrilled to have played a significant role in brokering a living bequest from Frances Walker to The McManus: Dundee’s Art Gallery and Museum.  The Antarctic Suite, a series of large scale oil paintings of the Antarctic were shown in the McManus exhibition ‘Charting New Waters: Recent Acquisitions to the City’s permanent collection’. Frances hopes that her example will provide a model for other artists to follow.

There is no other artist who reflects perpetual discovery better than Frances.  As a seventy five year old, continuing her love for isolated places and the search for the sublime, Frances headed to the Antarctic, charting for her, new waters in which to discover novel fascinators for her perpetually young mind.
