Henry Taylor Wyse – Artist Teacher Craftsman
Drawing on extensive privately-owned family archives, this book sets out to celebrate the achievements of Henry Taylor Wyse (1870-1951). An art master in Dundee, Coatbridge, Arbroath and Edinburgh, he influenced the course of art education across Scotland. In a parallel career, he was not only a noted landscape artist but a writer and publisher and a leading member of the Arts and Crafts movement in Scotland. He designed furniture and was a fine craftsman in gesso and metalwork. A founder member of the Scottish Guild of Handicraft, he was also the man behind the celebrated Holyrood Pottery.
Written by the two noted art historians, Elizabeth Cumming, and Heather Jack. Elizabeth Cumming is a historian and curator of Scottish art and design. Heather Jack is a ceramics historian and a recent President of the Scottish Pottery Society.
