William Crozier was a great collector of rugs for the floors of his own houses and relished the opportunity to design his own rugs for Dovecot to translate.
Always intrigued by pattern, the artist wanted a piece which could be read from all sides. Using nature as his stimulus, Crozier expressed rapidly the image he wanted. As one critic observed “a heightened account of nature. Landscape reinterpreted through the colours of his heart”. The enormous scale and the heightened density of colour from the wool really shows this powerful, bright composition beautifully.
