  • About the work
  • About the artist
    Tom MacDonald was born in Glasgow and originally trained as a marine engineer. He briefly attended the Glasgow School of Art, but was largely self-taught. In the early 1940s he befriended the artist Josef Herman and the Scottish-born painter, J. D. Fergusson. MacDonald worked on set designs for the Glasgow Unity Theatre from 1941-48 and in the early 1950s he began to exhibit his own paintings. From 1965 on he painted sets for Scottish Opera. In 1969 he participated in the opening show of the Compass Gallery, Glasgow. He also exhibited work at the Royal Scottish Academy and the Society of Scottish Artists. MacDonald’s work is represented in several public collections including the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art in Edinburgh.
