This month’s Art and Design Library exhibition features the work of Glasgow-based artist Finlay Mackintosh.
Here’s what Peter Howson wrote of Finlay’s work:
`I first met Finlay in 1988, and from that meeting became as admirer and collector of his beautiful work. He is what I would call a genuine NAÏVE – that is to say he is a pure, sincere artist. He doesn’t try to obtain a childlike vision of the world. It is done without trying, and that is important. The landscapes and townscapes, and especially the snow pictures are my favourite. Many of these works have a sublime simplicity which is more difficult to achieve than people think. Over the years Finlay has developed his vision. The recent work is stunning, and shows him to be a master of his craft. It deserves recognition.’
‘Winter Scenes’ is on display until 29 April.
