John Bellany: A Passion for Life
A welcome and deserved tribute to Scotland's finest figurative artist on his 70th birthday. Through half a century he has sketched, painted and engraved people and himself through light and dark, including his own liver transplant and the emotions of a visit to Belsen. As his pleasure has returned so his brush has freed. A major retrospective of a formidable artist.
