Banner, entitled Autumn, by Elaine Wilson

This silk banner entitled 'Autumn' was made by the artist Elaine Wilson in 1985. It was inspired by drawings of trees and stone cliffs in the autumn at Culzean in Ayrshire, and in particular the interaction of light and landscape.

The handwoven banner has a dyed warp and the weft inlaid with a surface pattern.

During the 1980s the Scottish Development Agency purchased a number of hand-crafted items for its Scottish Crafts Collection. The aim of the collection was to inform the public of craft production in Scotland through touring exhibitions and education programmes. When the Scottish Craft Council was wound up, the collection was transferred to the National Museums of Scotland.
