The Story of Scottish Art

My new book, ‘The Story of Scottish Art’ is published on September 3rd.
The Story of Scottish Art

The Story of Scottish Art is a page-turning narrative full of scandals and rebellions, seismic historical events and personal tragedies that inspired or destroyed artists. It is the epic story of how 5000 years of creativity defined a nation – from the earliest Neolithic symbols etched onto the landscape of Kilmartin Glen to Glasgow’s fame as a contemporary centre of artistic innovation.  Available to purchase at your local bookshop and online via Waterstones and Amazon

‘Alexander Goudie (1933-2004) was one of Scotland’s leading figurative painters. After training at the Glasgow School of Art he distinguished himself as a portrait painter whose sitters included HM Queen Elizabeth II. His virtuoso painting style was directly influenced by the legacy of the Scottish Colourists and The Glasgow Boys.

Throughout his life he was inspired by a broad range of subjects, from the rural landscape of Brittany to the art of sumptuous still lives; from Oscar Wilde’s play ‘Salome’ to Robert Burns’ poem ‘Tam o’Shanter’. He even decorated the interiors of great ships, notably the 25,000 tonne flagship of the Brittany Ferries fleet, ‘Le Bretagne’.
