William Baillie served in the Royal Corps of Signals in the second world war and was based in the Far East. He took inspiration from his war service as well as his travels to Mumbai, Kashmir and Nepal. His work was against the fashion of the times, being lyrical and sometimes abstract. Saffron dominates much of his work, possibly referencing India where it symbolises courage and the rejection of material gain.
