William Burns was active/lived in United Kingdom.  William Burns is known for painting.

Biography   William Burns


Born in Newton Mearns, William Burns trained at Glasgow School of Art in the late 1940s and thereafter at Hospitalfield, near Arbroath.  One of a number of artists from the west who settled in the north-east of Scotland, he joined the art department of Aberdeen College of Education.  Burns' career was cut short at the age of 51 when his light aircraft crashed in dense fog.

Using his environment as a starting point, Burns increasingly explored abstraction and color as means of expression.  Early landscapes gave way to harbors and late in his career, Burns explored the mines along the east coast of Scotland with the benefit of a pilot's bird's-eye view.
