Synopsis: John Bellany is the most influential Scottish painter since the war, re-establishing a native, figurative art at a time when Modernism and abstraction seemed invincible. His paintings are in the collections of major museums and art galleries around the world, including the National Galleries of Scotland, The Tate Gallery, and The Museum of Modern Art and Metropolitan Museum in New York. John McEwen’s book takes the reader through the truly amazing life and works of one of Britain’s foremost living artists. Throughout his career he has painted elemental allegories, and his work often reflected events in his personal life, such as a series of pictures inspired by his liver transplant.
About the Author: John McEwan, author and critic, was born in 1942 in the Scottish Borders. He has written a number of acclaimed art books, including monographs of Paula Rego, Michael Sandle and the late William Gear.
