Note: Sir Norman Reid is best known for being the celebrated Director of the Tate Gallery from 1964 to 1979 but he was also a talented painter, having won a scholarship to study at Edinburgh School of Art in the late 1930's under William Gillies. The Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art hold and have exhibited his work, which rarely appears at auction.

 

A condition report is offered as an indication of any issues visible to the naked eye. As none of our staff is a professional conservator or restorer, buyers must satisfy themselves in respect of condition and McTear’s can provide contact details of local professionals who can provide fully comprehensive expert reports, usually for a modest charge. The condition report does not form part of any contract between McTear's and the buyer, and all lots are offered "as is" in accordance with our Terms of Business available on our website.
