Note: A fine example of the work of Alan King, a frequent contributor and a great favourite in The Scottish Contemporary Art Auctions between 2008 and 2013.. McTear's has established a succession of UK auction record prices for Alan King's work in recent years and the current record is £3600 for Weavers of Truth, lot 275 27th November 2016. Although Alan was a much respected and successful artist during his lifetime, auction prices since 2013 have continued to rise, even though very few collectors have so far opted to sell their examples of his work. The stripey trousers are an Alan King "trade mark".


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.
