Alison Watt: Phantom DVD

Rate this

Writer and Narrator

Alison Watt OBE is a Scottish painter. From January 2006 to February 2008, Watt served as the seventh artist in residence at the National Gallery, London.

This art DVD records her two-year residency, as she created paintings inspired by masterpieces in the National Gallery. She already had a lifelong attachment to paintings in the collection, yet the prolonged contact, particularly with Saint Francis in Meditation by Francisco de Zurbarán, led her to notice new details and unexpected nuances which influenced her own art.


Through a series of interviews with Watt, this art DVD documents the formation of this exhibition, with particular emphasis on the creative process. Extras on this Alison Watt exhibition DVD include Eye, a series of art films showing Watt working on her paintings in the studio, and the renowned Scottish poet Don Paterson reciting a work written specially for this exhibition.


The Associate Artist Scheme at The National Gallery, London, is supported by the Rootstein Hopkins Foundation.
