An Artist's Life - Act I01 Jul 2021 - 24 Jul 2021
Flamboyant and confrontational, Scottish figurative painter Alexander Goudie (1933-2004) was part of a generation of influential painters who graduated from the Glasgow School of Art in the 1950s, and whose reputations are ripe for reappraisal. An Artist’s Life, Act I, charts his beginnings in post-war Paisley in the 1940s, student years at Glasgow School of Art in the 1950s and his early career - a period in which Goudie embarked upon a life-long project to document the evolving landscape and culture of his wife’s homeland, Brittany. To accompany this exhibition, we have created a beautifully illustrated publication, which includes vintage images of the artist and family. Join our events programme, which includes personal insight from his son, the artist, author and broadcaster, Lachlan Goudie.
