Signs and Games of the Black Shed

Artist: Buchan, Dennis, RSA · 1937-2023

The "Black Shed" referred to in the painting is a "large tarry shed at Arbroath harbour..surrounded by fishing gear clutter as well as lending a wall to signs and notices. The painting "plays" games with these elements...Hence the title" see letter from Buchan to RSA dated 2003-01-16, letter in Buchan's file
