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.
