Note: Hamish MacDonald was born in Glasgow in 1935. He studied at Glasgow School of Art between 1963 and 1967. From 1968 he successfully combined painting with teaching and also guest lectured throughout Scotland. In 1991 he retired from his post as an Art Department Principal to concentrate fully on the development of his painting. Much of his work was inspired by the Scottish Colourist movement, but MacDonald preserved an individuality which marks him out as both a vibrant and important artist. Throughout his career he succeeded in capturing dramatic scenes with his own passionately innovative palette. Hamish MacDonald is now widely regarded as one of Scotland's most successful contemporary artists. From 1964, Hamish staged numerous solo exhibitions in Scotland and Cornwall. He also participated in group shows with prominent galleries in London and throughout the UK. His works can be found in many major collections throughout the world.


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.
