Awarded a travelling scholarship, Gillies studied in Paris with Andre Lhote from 1923 to 1924, before visiting Italy. Following a year teaching at Inverness Academy, he took up a part-time position at Edinburgh College of Art under David Alison, an association with the College which was to last 40 years. He became Head of Drawing and Painting in 1946 and was Principal from 1960 to 1966, a powerful influence on the younger generation of painters.
