R.T.H.S. was an accomplished, distinctive and consistent contributor to the Scottish art scene for over four decades. Trained at Edinburgh College of Art, he went on to have two very successful careers; as a painter and educator. He widely exhibited widely, including many one-man exhibitions over a period of 1969-1994 at The Scottish Gallery (Aitken Dott). His first solo exhibition in 1969 was hailed as being unusually mature.
Such a sophisticated technique of paint application/scoring/scraping for a whimsical subject matter. It's making me smile on this winter's morning.
It could be cheering up your walls for just £150. Come on folks, you know you want to kick-start your Scottish Art collection with this little beauty! I also have a few other pieces by the same artist, that are not on the website, so please contact me if you would like more information.
