Hand drawn limited edition lithograph print titled 'The Burden' by John Bellany. Each print is signed and numbered by the Artist. Produced as an edition of 50.

Bellany exhibited with the National Galleries of Scotland many times during his lifetime and has over 70 artworks in the Scottish Collection. He was born nearby in the fishing village of Port Seton, south of Edinburgh. He studied at Edinburgh College of Art, and whilst a student he famously exhibited his artworks on the railings of the National Gallery of Scotland on the Mound.

Bellany’s work of the 1960s and 1970s dealt with original sin, guilt, sex and death. His characteristic paintings are large compositions featuring his own personal symbolism, often derived from the sea and from religion, two elements that dominated his childhood. The flawed nature of humanity was usually central to his paintings. His works have been exhibited across the world and purchased by collectors including Sean Connery and David Bowie.
