Lot 8 (The Scottish Pictures Auction, 30th August 2017)

Sold for £4,400


* ALEXANDER GOUDIE RP RGI (SCOTTISH 1933 - 2004), GOING SAILING oil on canvas, signed 60.5cm x 80.5cm Framed and under glass. Label verso: John Gibson, Fine Art Dealer, 112 Bothwell Street, Glasgow. Provenance: Glasgow family collection and by descent. Note: This painting is a view from the terrace of the house in Loctudy (Brittany, France) which belonged to the parents of Goudie's French wife, Mainee. Goudie and his family spent many summers there and the view looks towards Ile-Tudi. Lachlan Goudie kindly confirmed: My father painted the view obsessively under all kinds of skies, looking from Loctudy to Ile-Tudi. I particularly recognise the threatening glower to the clouds! I can tell it's also a painting from the early 80's as his style became characterised by a flatter use of colour then.
