About Harry

Harry Holland was born in Glasgow in 1941 and trained at St. Martin’s School of Art between 1965 and 1969. Today he is widely regarded as one of Britain’s foremost figurative craftsmen.

His paintings imply situations, events, or relationships that are not directly expressed, which imbues them with an engaging sense of mystery. A master of painting, Holland works with uncompromising commitment and sincerity to produce art that is intense and rewarding.

Since the 1970s his work has been exhibited in over 30 solo shows and countless group shows worldwide. It has been collected internationally and by numerous institutions including by Tate Gallery, British Museum, Metropolitan Museum of Art New York, National Museum of Wales, National Portrait Gallery Canada, and European Parliament Collection.
