Craigie Aitchison was born in Edinburgh in 1926, and studied Law at Edinburgh University (1944-46) and then at the Middle Temple in London in 1948. He changed career in 1950, returning to Edinburgh to practice painting before studying at the Slade School of Fine Art (1952-54) under William Coldstream and Robert Medley, and alongside Paula Rego and Euan Uglow. In 1955 Aitchison was awarded the British Council Italian Government Scholarship for painting and travelled to Italy, which had a profound influence upon his work. His first solo exhibition was at the Beaux Arts Gallery in London in 1959, and he continued on to have significant retrospectives at the Serpentine Gallery in 1981, at the Gallery of Modern Art in Glasgow in 1996 and at the Royal Academy in London in 2003. In 1994 he won the first ever Jerwood Painting Prize and won the Nordstern Art Prize in 2000. He was elected an Associate Member of the Royal Academy of Art in 1978 and a Senior Member in 1988, and he was made a CBE in 1999.

He died in 2009. Several of his works are held in the collections of the National Gallery of Scotland and Tate Gallery
