James McBey


Aberdeen Art Gallery

14 November 2009 - 23 January 2010

The noted painter and etcher James McBey died fifty years ago this year. Thanks to the generosity of his widow and other donors Aberdeen Art Gallery owns the largest collection of his work in the world. To mark this anniversary we celebrate his life and prodigious artistic achievements with two displays, an exhibition of paintings and watercolours, and in December a display of the most important etchings and drypoints.
