About this artwork

Drawing on the figurative Glasgow tradition, Old Master paintings and the work of Degas and Sickert, Conroy concentrates on depicting the male figure, either alone or in groups. During the 1980s, figurative painting experienced a revival, but the dominant style was expressionism. Unlike most of his contemporaries at the Glasgow School of Art, in this drawing Conroy has chosen a style and technique based on traditional models and close observation.
