Flora Wood

Flora Wood (1908 - 1998) was a Scottish painter who continued the long tradition of artistic sympathy between Scotland and France. She studied in Florence in the mid 1920s before attending Edinburgh College of Art. Wood's later studies with Andre Lhote in Paris enlivened her work with the spirit of European modernism, and on her visits to France and Spain she met Man Ray, Salvador Dali and Picasso. The cubist elements in some of her pictures show her debt to Picasso as well as to Lhote, although her bold sense of design and colour was Celtic in origin. Note: Flora Wood listed her birthdate in exhibition catalogues as 1910, but her obituary in The Scotsman states that she was actually born in July, 1908, in Portobello, Scotland.
