Note: James Orr was a regular and successful contributor to The Scottish Contemporary Art Auctions. A modest man when it came to his own achievements, his work is held in the collection of HRH Duke of Edinburgh and in many private collections across the world. He won several awards for his work, including the RGI’s Royal College of Physicians & Surgeons of Glasgow Award. His paintings have given and continue to give great pleasure to many people. Renowned for his kindness and generosity, he also nurtured many budding artists and gave his time generously through artist demonstrations for many art clubs across Scotland. James is much missed by all at McTear's.
