About

Alexander Goudie (1933-2004) was one of Scotland’s leading figurative painters. After training at the Glasgow School of Art he distinguished himself as a portrait painter whose sitters included HM Queen Elizabeth II. His virtuoso painting style was directly influenced by the legacy of the Scottish Colourists and The Glasgow Boys.  

Throughout his life he was inspired by a broad range of subjects, from the rural landscape of Brittany to the art of sumptuous still lives; from Oscar Wilde’s play 'Salome' to Robert Burns' poem 'Tam o’Shanter'. This exhibition will include work from across the whole of his career, including paintings, drawings, sculpture and ceramics.  

Alexander Goudie was a formative influence upon his son, the artist Lachlan Goudie ROI, one of the judges in the BBC TV series 'The Big Painting Challenge’.
