A retrospective of Hamish MacDonald’s career which began with his studies at Glasgow School of Art between 1963 and 1967. It will feature many of the landscapes for which he was so admired, with additional drawings and paintings from family and day-to-day life.
For much of his life Hamish MacDonald combined his painting with a career in teaching Modern Art, giving up the latter in 1991 to concentrate on his own work. His broad, fluid style and bold palette made him a natural successor to the Scottish Colourist tradition while his ability to capture the atmosphere and vitality of his subject was enhanced by a confident and mature style.
Hamish MacDonald died in 2008 after a long and illustrious career spanning more than four decades. He has long been regarded as one of Scotland’s most successful artists and his work is held in galleries and private collections throughout the world including those of HRH The Duke of Edinburgh, Paisley Art Gallery and Burmah Oil Company.
Louise Jones, Director of the much respected Lemon Street Gallery pays homage to her late father with this stunning new show of his work in his home town of Glasgow.
