Alasdair Gray: Final portrait installed in Òran Mór’s bar

Wednesday, January 22nd, 2020

We are pleased to confirm that Colin Beattie has successfully negotiated terms to acquire the last portraiture of Alasdair Gray before his passing.

Renowned Glasgow artist and friend of Colin, David Richardson who worked studiously painting Alasdair at his home is more than pleased that the artwork has found a worthy home in Òran Mór’s Main Bar.

Colin Beattie said “I’ve known David Richardson for a number of years and was delighted to be offered first dibs on this spectacular rendition of Alasdair.”

“Emotional and atmospheric – it’s like he’s sitting right in front of me!”
