Golden Years: Robert Colquhoun & Robert MacBryde

Golden Years opens just prior to the joint retrospective at The Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art in Edinburgh and we have compiled the largest collection of works for sale since the Mayor Gallery exhibition in 1977. Colquhoun and MacBryde were painters and partners in life; they were working class heroes from Ayrshire, who emerged as stars from Glasgow School of Art. They heralded anew era in modern art in London during the 1940s, and their work was sought for international collections.

Golden Years pays particular attention to where the artists come from; their sexuality prevented them from living an ‘honest’ life in Scotland but their backgrounds in Ayrshire were a constant source of inspiration and many of the images within this catalogue, some seen for the first time, speak to their roots.
