Collections: Wilhelmina Barns-Graham

Six stunning Wilhelmina Barns-Graham screenprints were purchased using restricted funds for the Royal Victoria Building, Western General Hospital, which specialises in medicine for the elderly. The artist created vibrant contemporary artworks right up to her death at the age of 92. She worked so swiftly that the printers, she collaborated with, could not keep up with her. An inspiration to us all.
