About this artwork

Danny McGrain is one of the great figures in the history of Scottish football. He joined Glasgow Celtic in 1967, the year in which they became the first ever British team to win the European Cup. He stayed at Celtic for twenty years and won a record sixty-two caps for Scotland. He was twice seriously injured and suffered from diabetes throughout his career. Humphrey Ocean, who was commissioned by the gallery to paint McGrain, always pays particular concern to the overall presentation of his work - here, note the football studs decorating the frame.
