* IAIN R MCINTOSH RSA (SCOTTISH 1945 - ),
oak carving, signed with initials "IM" as is his norm
Note: Iain R. McIntosh RSA was born in 1945 in Peterhead, Aberdeenshire, and studied at Gray’s School of Art. Trained as a sculptor, he is perhaps best known for his wood-carved boats and sailing vessels, inspired by his coastal upbringing. In recent years he has also begun to create paintings and drawings but his subject matter is still never far from the sea. He was elected Associate of The Royal Scottish Academy in 1981 and full Academician in 2005. His work very rarely appears at auction.
Whilst every effort is made to provide accurate and honest condition reports, none of our staff is a professional conservator, restorer or engineer. Any condition report offered should be accepted as an indication of any obvious issues or problems or the lack of them. Buyers are urged to satisfy themselves in respect of the condition of any lot and McTear’s can provide contact details of local professional restorers who will 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 in the printed catalogue and available on our website.
