HENRY YOUNG ALISON (SCOTLAND, 1889–1972)

Henry Young Alison, brother of artist David Alison, was born in Dysart, Fife, Scotland. He was a figure and portrait painter and exhibited at the Royal Scottish Academy from 1916 to 1921. He trained at the Glasgow School of Art, Glasgow, Scotland, under Francis Newbery from 1905 to 1912. He studied drawing, painting and life classes under Maurice Greiffenhagen, Paul Artot and James Huck, and gained his diploma in 1911. During the First World War, he served in France, but was captured and held as a prisoner of war. Whilst imprisoned, he was wounded in one eye and lost the sight of it (his wartime letters to the Glasgow School of Art survive in the secretary and treasurer's letters, 1914–18). He joined the staff of the Glasgow School of Art in 1927 as an assistant in the drawing and painting classes, becoming supervisor of the evening school and the general course in 1932. At Alan Walton's resignation in 1945, he took over as interim director. Alison exhibited extensively at the Royal Academy, Royal Scottish Academy, Glasgow Institute, and his works are housed in The Glasgow Art Gallery.
