Wednesday 22nd November 2017
1.00 pm to 3.00 pm
At the Mall Galleries learning centre
ALEXANDER GOUDIE RGI RP 1933 – 2004
Lachlan Goudie’s father was one of Scotland’s most distinguished figurative painters. During this fascinating talk Lachlan will describe what it was like to grow up in an eccentric artistic household where his father had his studio. Alexander Goudie painted portraits of a host of different sitters from Billy Connolly to HM Queen Elizabeth II and Lachlan learned how to paint while drawing on the floor of his studio and watching how he worked.
During his career Alexander Goudie undertook a range of different painting projects, from documenting the landscape and farmers of rural Brittany to designing Opera sets and costumes and illustrating the celebrated Scottish painting ‘Tam o’Shanter’ in a comprehensive series of enormous paintings.
Lachlan Goudie ROI will talk about all these endeavours and how they shaped his own formative years as an artist.
This is an unmissable opportunity to hear from Lachlan and places are limited. Please email Haidee-Jo Summers ROI to book your place.
This event is free for ROI members/Friends and £10 for all others.
