Victoria Crowe Beyond Likeness reviewed by The Times

Scottish National Portrait Gallery, Edinburgh

Dr Winifred Rushforth sits, almost in silhouette, before a large window. With age, she lists slightly to one side, fixing the viewer with watery blue eyes, apparently unperturbed by the dinosaurs rampaging outside.

Painted about a year before her death at the age of nearly 100, this portrait of the psychoanalyst and dream specialist by Victoria Crowe seems to portray someone balancing on the border between two worlds, without a clear preference for either. It’s typical of a painter who always tries to imbue her work with something more than simple likeness. This show, part of the Edinburgh Art Festival, brings together 54 of Crowe’s works and at its best it’s a treat.
