Celebrating a forgotten Scotswoman artist

As with most female artists of her time, Mary Cameron’s name faded into relative obscurity following her death in 1921.

Captivated by Spanish culture, Cameron created large scale compositions of traditional peasant life and dramatic bullfights.

While providing a catalogue of her vibrant and evocative work with additional context, the book also gives an extremely detailed and interesting account of a life unknown to many.

Mary Cameron: Life in Paint, by Helen E Scott, published by Sansom and Company, £20.
