Ian Cheyne trained at Glasgow School of Art under Maurice Geiffenhagen, originally concentrating on painting, but gradually becoming more interested in colour woodcuts, for which he is now primarily known.

How ‘The List’ Works

Our Lists are published here on the first Wednesday of every month. They introduce at least 100 works to the large stock of oil paintings, watercolours, drawings and prints, arranged over three floors at our Museum Street building.

An email alert and link to the new List is sent to those who have asked to receive it on the preceding Tuesday evening. However, nothing is sold from The List before 9.30am on the Wednesday. Those of you who are on the doorstep get first go at the new stock, and while we try to keep telephone and email inquiries in strict order of receipt, there will be times when technological overlaps muddy the system.

Images: These are only intended as an indication of the work – please telephone or email if you have any questions about the photograph’s relationship to the original. We reserve pictures for 24 hours while they are being considered. For larger images or to make reservations please email.
