Peter Howson

29 March - 5 May 2012


The art of Peter Howson is deeply ambitious in thought and deed. He deals passionately with profound personal, social and spiritual themes, using masterly technique to accentuate the positive, exaggerating line and colour, darkness and light, clarity and ambiguity. This is figurative, narrative art in the grand tradition. - Robert Heller, London 2008

Peter Howson has established a formidable reputation as one of his generation's leading figurative painters. Many of his paintings derive inspiration from the streets of Glasgow, where he was raised. He is renowned for his penetrating insight into the human condition, and his heroic portrayals of the mighty and meek.
