Dovecot first conversed with William Crozier about creating a tapestry in the 1980s when the Studio was based in Corstorphine. At this time, a series of works by Scottish artists including John Bellany, Robin Phillipson and Willie Rodger were translated in tapestry but these early discussions with Crozier never came to fruition. However, in 2009 Crozier was approached again by Dovecot to revisit the project and suitable images were presented as options for tapestry.

A mixed media work, first exhibited in Crozier’s 1990 show at the Scottish Gallery’s Cork Street premises, titled Easter Day was specifically chosen by Crozier as an image he wanted to see as a tapestry.

Master Weavers, Douglas Grierson, David Cochrane and Naomi Robertson worked together with Crozier to select colours for the tapestry. In Easter Day Crozier’s signature bright palette and loose expression of the natural form works powerfully on this considerable scale of tapestry.
