John Bellany, born 1942, helped change the course of painting in Scotland. His intensely felt paintings of fisherfolk and their precarious life at sea were a direct challenge to the much-diluted Scottish colourist tradition and its landscapes and still lifes. The sheer size and raw emotion of Bellany's canvases, their depictions of a way of life that the artist knew from growing up in a Port Seton fishing family - and their elevation of that life onto a symbolic level - were at odds with the decorative, drawing-room pictures of much contemporary Scottish painting in the 1960s.
