Alan Davie (1920 - 2014) was one of Scotland's most internationally recognised artists with works in public collections across the world. Early on, Davie appreciated the significance of American Abstract Expressionism, having seen Pollock's work in Peggy Guggenheim's collection in Venice in 1948, an experience that inspired him to paint with more improvisation and on a much larger scale. In 1956 Davie made his first trip to the United States where he was the subject of a solo exhibition at the Catherine Viviano Gallery where he was introduced to Robert Motherwell, Jackson Pollock, Franz Kline, Mark Rothko, and Willem de Kooning. By the early 1960s Davie was drawing increasingly on myth and magic symbolism, viewing himself less as an artist than as a medium, or shaman, borrowing signs and symbols from cultures as diverse as the Navajo Indians, the Caribbean islands, Aboriginal Australians, and the Ancient Egyptians, Celts and Picts.
