Note: Frank Docherty was born in Glasgow and trained at Glasgow School of Art from 1960 - 1964. He was elected RSW in 1978. For more than a decade he has lived and worked in the South of France at Monfort Sur Argens where one of his neighbours and closest friends is Eric Idle of Monty Python fame. Docherty is something of a rebel of his generation of Scottish artists and he is not scared to express himself and have a light poke at life's comedies and tragedies. Frank's quirky paintings are suited to a mature art taste where the appreciation is in the narrative form, rather than the decorative. Frank Docherty’s paintings are represented in private collections in France, Brussels, London, Stockholm and Los Angeles and of course, Glasgow and all around Scotland.


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.
