Ian Fleming was born in Glasgow in 1906 and studied at Glasgow School of Art during the 1920s before joining their staff in 1931. In 1954, he relocated to Aberdeen as Principal of Gray’s School of Art but continued to pursue his painting practice alongside his academic commitments. He was elected a full Academician of the Royal Scottish Academy in 1956, and by the time of his death was the longest-established member. The fishing towns of Angus and Kincardineshire were to be his inspiration for many post-war paintings in which he celebrated the colour, forms and architecture of the working harbour communities.
