Michael Wishart (1928 - 1996) Art Piece


Lorna Wishart of Binsted (1911-2000) is known locally as a person who loved Binsted Woods, and as a woman of faith who erected the shrine beside what is now known as the Madonna Pond. She is known to a wider public for her role in the lives of artistic people of the 1930s and 40s, and for being the lover of both Laurie Lee and Lucian Freud. It is less well known that, as well as being an artist herself, she was the origin of an artistic dynasty which is still flourishing.

Her son, Michael Wishart (1928-1996) is the artist who painted the subject artwork. Michael was a successful artist in spite of his hard-driven lifestyle, and her daughter with Laurie Lee, Yasmin David, was a dedicated mystical nature painter whose impressive work is becoming better known.

Michael grew up painting in Binsted, where members of his family still live. His early paintings had much to do with the Binsted landscape, and later he created mainly abstract or mystical paintings, though some later works also still have connections to Binsted. Many of his paintings capture his love of the connections Binsted offered to more ancient ways of life, and conveys his emotional experience of his homeland landscape.
