The Wonderful World of James McBey: The Fine Art Society and Fettes Fine Art
Over a period of 50 years James McBey (1883-1959) would have studios in London, the US and Morocco. From the north-east of Scotland, where he was born and raised, he went on to travel extensively through Europe, North Africa, the Middle East, the States and central America. He produced a substantial body of work and set saleroom records for the highest prices achieved by a contemporary printmaker.
Our exhibition brings together more than 70 artworks - paintings, watercolours and prints - with many from the personal collections of the artist’s late wife and Martin Hardie.
