Note: Dorothy Bruce was born in Wisconsin, USA, gaining her Bachelor of Art from the Minneapolis School of Art, now The Minneapolis College of Art and Design. She travelled extensively in the States and Australia, participating in Group Shows, before holding a one-woman Exhibition in Brisbane, Australia. She has lived and worked in Scotland for over 40 years, painting the landscapes and coastal scenes that are so distinctive to this country. The continually changing light and austerity of much of the Northern Highlands and the West Coast of Scotland are recurring themes in much of her work. During these years she has enjoyed numerous one-woman shows on the West Coast, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Aberdeen and Aberfeldy, plus Group Exhibitions throughout Scotland, including The Royal Society for Painters in Watercolour.


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.
