John Bellany

Born in Port Seton, Scotland John Bellany was surrounded in his upbringing by the images he lovingly and brilliantly reproduces today from his family’s trades of Boat builders and Fishermen.

Many of Bellany’s paintings contain the Fishing community be it by oil paintings of harbour’s with large Fishing boats moored up, or by the trademark portraits of the Fishing community people, all with red noses and flushed cheeks from the harshness of the environment that they work in.

Today Bellany is recognised as one of the greatest Scottish Painters of the Modern era, he was awarded the C.B.E. and his works can be seen in some of the Worlds greatest collections including The Museum of Modern Art, New York, The Metropolitan Museum, New York and The Tate Gallery, Britain.
