Willie Rodger was born in Kirkintilloch in 1930 and is one of Scotland's best-loved artists.
He is a pre-eminent printmaker and famed for his comical linocuts and woodcuts which he interestingly printed without the use of a press.
Rodger studied Graphics and Printmaking at Glasgow School of Art from 1948 – 1953.
After a brief spell working in advertising, he took up a teaching position. He was Principal Teacher of Art at Clydebank High School from 1968 to 1987 but kept up his own practice, exhibiting widely in Scotland from 1954.
He was elected to the Royal Scottish Academy in 1989 and awarded an honorary doctorate by the University of Stirling in 1999.
A popular artist - his work is held in public and private collections worldwide and has received numerous awards for his printmaking.
I have a little group of Rodger's limited edition prints dating from the early 1970s for sale in my Iconic Edinburgh Online shop. They are all from a series featuring interesting people from Scottish history. Most of these are now sold - so only a couple is now left.
They are all in excellent condition and being sold UNFRAMED.
All the images in this series are printed on the same paper size.
The sheet is 40.5 x 30 cm.
Each image is about the same size - the oval printed shape being 28 x 18 cm.
This interesting print is typical of Rodger's work - it is a colour linocut and features an imagined image of Malcolm Canmore.
These prints date to the 1970s and are all signed and dated by the artist. Impressions from this series are in the collection of the National Galleries of Scotland.
