At nearly 78,000 square kilometres of land, with over 250 munros and roughly 30,000 lochs, Scotland’s landscape has plenty to offer up as inspiration for artists of every medium. Throughout history, innumerable artists have portrayed the Scottish landscape with their ever changing styles and tastes; Glasgow-native Hamish MacDonald (1935 – 2008) has created some of the most admired contemporary examples of such landscapes. His expressive artworks show influences from the Impressionist and Scottish Colourist movements, though his vibrant style is entirely his own.
McTear’s is pleased to offer three original Hamish MacDonald artworks alongside three limited edition prints by the artist in the 17 April Scottish Contemporary Art Auction. Although each oil measures less than 30cm x 30cm, their impact is mighty. Evocative and emotive, these small landscapes leave an impression on the viewer.
From moody panoramas, springtime flowers and isolated buildings, each artwork showcases a different splendid aspect of the Scottish landscape. The giclee prints up for offer in this catalogue also showcase MacDonald’s ability to depict a wide range of iconic and well-loved Scottish locations, such as Morar, Ayrshire and Lochinver.
