  • Royal Scottish Academy Latimer Award November 2013 The Tuscan Borgo etchings have been awarded the RSA Latimer Award and reviewed on the RSA website by Colin Greenslade, RSA Director: Semi-formed buildings and alleyways, glimpsed through rolling mist and haze, guide us through a slow-burn Tuscan night. With the romance of silence and mystery, a hint of gothica and a quietening heat, we are drawn into ancient vennels in the gloaming. A frisson of excitement and danger....the imagination runs wild...
