Description

Earl Haig (1918-2006) A Watercolour entitled 'Views of Allar forward Jerusalem' Signed and dated 1940- a copy letter from artist saying this was done whilst he was in B Squadron, Royal Scot Greys camp in June 1940.
Dawyck Haig, the second Earl Haig, who has died aged 91, spent a lifetime struggling to decide whether he was primarily a fine modern painter or the son of Field Marshal Douglas Haig, Britain's commander-in-chief in the first world war. After an early breakdown, his psychoanalyst recommended that Dawyck should concentrate on his painting.
This he did, and he began exhibiting soon after the second world war. He had his first London exhibition at the Redfern Gallery in 1949 and at the Scottish Gallery in Edinburgh the same year. It was not until 1956, however, when one of his portraits was sold at auction at Christie's along with works by Rubens, Rembrandt, Hogarth and Reynolds, that he really made his name as an artist. Later, he occasionally sold works to the royal family. The Duke of Edinburgh bought one for 750, but admitted it had been on behalf of the Queen, because "I can't afford to buy pictures." Haig's work is now in the collections of the Arts Council and the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, and last year a retrospective of his work, Haig at Ninety, was held at the Scottish Gallery.
