The Glasgow Boys are an enduring inspiration to me, and dust has no chance to settle on my copy of the definitive book on the Glasgow Boys, by Roger Billcliffe. So it is with great pleasure that I can announce, that Roger Billcliffe has agreed to include my painting “Roman Glass with Figs” in his […]
