Francis Boag: Blue Remembered Hills at Fraser Gallery in St Andrews celebrates the Dundee-born artist’s 70th year. Boag studied at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art in the late 1960s. His tutors included Alberto Morrocco and David McClure, whose influence can be seen in his love of vibrant colour and the sensuous application of paint. A leading figure of the “New Scottish Colourists”, he has been named one of Scotland’s 50 most collectable artists. His paintings are held in a host of private, public, corporate and national collections. He is the only Scottish artist to be included in the UNICEF Fine Art collection and his 2015 Christmas card design for the children’s charity was a top seller, raising more than £35,000.
