Alistair Michie was the son of Anne Redpath, the famous Scottish colourist working in the first half of the 20th century. He was obviously very influenced by her works and 1962 he went to the Venice Biennale and saw the works of Mark Rothko and other influential and important 20th century Abstract Expressionists. From that point on he purely painted abstracts. He was a member of the Royal West of England Academy and a fine painter whose work is recognised as being some of the best produced in the 20th century.
