About

An original signed watercolor by English artist Gillie Cawthorne (1963-) titled "The Royal Observatory, Edinburgh", 1997. Hand signed and dated lower left by Cawthorne. Archivally matted with matting from Holland and shrink-wrapped. Matted size: 18.5" x 22.5". Image size: 11.5" x 15.5. Mint condition. The Royal Observatory, Edinburgh (ROE) is an astronomical institution located on Blackford Hill in Edinburgh. The site is owned by the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC). The ROE comprises the UK Astronomy Technology Centre (UK ATC) of STFC, the Institute for Astronomy of the School of Physics and Astronomy of the University of Edinburgh, and the ROE Visitor Centre. The observatory carries out astronomical research and university teaching; design, project management, and construction of instruments and telescopes for astronomical observatories; and teacher training in astronomy and outreach to the public. The ROE Library includes the Crawford Collection of books and manuscripts gifted in 1888 by James Ludovic Lindsay, 26th Earl of Crawford. Before it moved to the present site in 1896, the Royal Observatory was located on Calton Hill, close to the centre of Edinburgh, at what is now known as the City Observatory. Having Already Been Well Established in the North of England, Our Gallery Introduced Gillie's Impressionist Landscape Paintings To The American Market in 2003. Her Exhibit At The Prestigious Holland & Holland Art Gallery On 57th Street, New York City, was a great success. Her Works Now Grace The Walls Of Collectors across The Nation. "The Andrew Wyeth of England" "My work is very much based on my love of the natural world, and I am fascinated by the effects of light and atmosphere. I hope to pass on to viewers of my pictures, some of the enjoyment and wonder that I experience, particularly in nature, but also in magnificent buildings like Durham Cathedral." - Gillie Cawthorne
