Trio of Scottish artists

THREE top Scottish artists come together in Angus for a significant retrospective exhibition.

William Littlejohn, from Arbroath, was born in 1929, studied at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art in Dundee and lectured in and became Head of Fine Art at Grays College of Art in Aberdeen.

David McClure, from Renfrewshire, was born in 1926, studied at Edinburgh College of Art and lectured in and became Head of Painting at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art in Dundee.

Alberto Morrocco, from Aberdeen, was born in 1917, studied at Grays School of Art and became Head of the School of Painting at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art.

The exhibition will take place at the Kinblethmont Gallery, by Arbroath, from April 23 to May 8 daily.

This is already causing considerable excitement among art lovers in the East of Scotland.

Littlejohn bequeathed the entire contents of his studio to the Royal Scottish Academy and it is with their approval that selected works of his are in this show.

Morrocco’s works are on show thanks to the cooperation and support of Bourne Fine Arts and the Morrocco family.

Similarly McClure’s work is being exhibited in conjunction with The Scottish Gallery and the McClure family.

Kinblethmont Gallery are showing around 45 paintings from the three artists, ranging in price from £95,000 down to £2,500.

Robert Ramsay, Kinblethmont, said: “It is hugely exciting to have the opportunity to show some of the work of these Titans of Scottish Art on what might be considered to be their home patch.

“After the wonderful James Morrison special last autumn, this is going to be another rare treat for us.”
